  1. Suggestion: One of your countrymen has reproduced the U-2 body castings from aluminum. USE THEM! The originals are dangerous! Jon.
  2. Anyone restore antique bicycles? Jon.
  3. Rusty - the vice-president of the company was a Goldberg. The carburetors were made. I have one. I also have some magazine advertisements for the Goldberg carburetor. The date is 1908. The early company was Stromberg Motor Devices. Which was re-organized (1916 says memory) and became the Stromberg Carburetor Company. Jon.
  4. Very few of them still work. The drive gears are plastic, and the heat from the exciter bulb tends to destroy the gears. IF YOU TRY TO GET IT WORKING, PLACE AN EXTERNAL FAN SO IT WILL BLOW ON THE PROJECTER!!!!!! Just on the off chance yours still works, the fan will move the heat away from the gears. I collect the ones for Pontiac. Here is a link to the section of my website about the Pontiac ones. The film is Super 8, and may be played WITHOUT SOUND if removed from the cartridge and wound on a Super 8 reel. The soundtrack on these things is optical, rather than the normal magnetic. EDIT: there is information in the link on the filmstrips / records as well. Filmstrips are 35mm. Records are 33 1/3 RPM. The earliest records are 16 inch, which requires a special turntable to play them. Jon.
  5. Think I may have mentioned this before, but the very earliest Stromberg carburetors were called Goldbergs. The name was rapidly changed to Stromberg due to "political correctness". Somewhere, I have a Goldberg carburetor, but it is that never-never land (I may never again find it ). But here is proof that it existed: Stromberg drawing P-8 - Goldberg bowl cover - glass bowl carburetor Jon.
  6. Bernie - My guess would be Carter furnished rods, since it was their error. One cannot simply change jets with metering rod technology and maintain the same A/F ratio percentages. Some mechanics probably did drill out the jets, but Carter would have done it the right way. Again, dealer serviced vehicles SHOULD have the fix. Lots of folks throw rocks at the dealerships, but I have always believed new vehicles SHOULD be dealer serviced, at least until running out of warranty. A good friend owned a dealership for a import company that had cylinder head issues in the mid-1970's. The company ordered the dealership to fix the issue (with the existing cylinder heads) on all dealer serviced vehicles until the issue was solved plus the revised cylinder head after the issue was solved, ALL at the company's expense. Customer paid nothing, not even for new antifreeze! Jon.
  7. Was reading through some of the Carter troubleshooting literature and found a Carter confidential sheet from 1959 concerning various complaints on 1956 Buick WCFB carbs. Some that have been discussed in these forums: (1) Stumble on left-turns - cause - fuel slosh in internal choke passage. Solution - install bushing in choke passage (this has been discussed) (2) Hesitation from stop - CAUSE - carbon build up in heat cross-over. As this bulletin was printed in 1959, I am guessing the Buick engine might be prone to carbon build up. The obvious solution - clean out the carbon. (3) Hesitation and lean running - There was an error in the very last production run of the 2347s WCFB where one-size LEAN rods were inadvertently installed. Solution - install standard metering rods. This bulletin was sent to Buick, and cars serviced at Buick dealerships should have had the issue corrected. Standard rods were 75-1231. The incorrect one-size lean rods were 75-1235. These numbers are on the metering rods, and may be read by a pair of "young eyes" (or eyes like mine and a good magnifying glass ) Jon.
  8. OK - I think time to put this one to rest. First, I would like to thank all who responded. I had successfully printed and pasted together one of the smaller prints; however: When I tried the stitching software (pretty easy, even for me), I found the pixel counts were not the same on all portions; which meant stitching was impossible. So I have two options: (1) Spend a lot of time with Photoshop adjusting pixel counts so the size of the portions comes up equal. (2) Digitize the prints into 4 separate files (Print-1-pass-1, print-1-pass-2, print-1-pass-3, print-1-pass-4). If I ever need one of the oversize prints, I can print all four passes and read the necessary information. Again, thanks to all. Jon.
  9. If you wish to fill in your blank spaces I have the complete set from roughly 1927 to 1972 available. 573-392-7378 (9-4 Mon-Tues central time). Jon.
  10. Huntz - will try them, thank you. I also tried printing, manually lining up and taping together, then re-photographing. Works probably well enough. Again, thanks. Jon.
  11. May not be the same. Have not tried pasting any of together. These two were side by side, so just guessed they were the same. Anyway, these show what I am trying to accomplish. Jon.
  12. The SC is Chevrolet, 1923 if memory is correct. Jon.
  13. Age is not a number First engine I helped rebuild was an MG-TC. Had to carry the engine to the basement for rebuilding. Difficult to hold the engine, so pulled engine and transmission together! Jon.
  14. This is one that required only two pictures. Jon.
  15. Thanks to all. I bookmarked all of the above, and will try them. Not sure how well they will work with drawings, will see. Have given some thought to just printing each of the 4 overlapping corners, manually pasting together, and re-photographing as a single image. Jon.
  16. The Stromberg carburetor archives are on 500 foot rolls of microfilm. When Stromberg (or whoever did the filming for them) photographed 36 inch by 48 inch drawings, they photographed them as 4 overlapping photos.I am slowing digitizing the archives. Run the filmstrips through a Wolverine filmstrip scanner, then copy individual photos into Photoshop, and correcting pixel counts to be usable information WITHOUT having to roll through 500 feet to find out the necessary information.I am digitizing the pictures at 300 ppi. Seems to be a workable resolution.What is a decent, easy to learn picture stitching software? I am using Windows 7 Professional version. I will NOT convert to Windows 10 at this time (maybe never). Yes, I am a stick-in-the-mud, but have dozens of thousands of data files that are NOT compatible with Office 10, let alone Windows 10. So whatever is recommended must be compatible with Windows 7 Professional.Thanks in advance.Jon.
  17. While it may be argued that I have a "vested interest" in your rebuilding your original carb I can assure you there is NO new carburetor out of the box that will not cost you at least an additional twice the original cost in recalibration and jury-rigging everything to work decently! And it still will probably not work nearly so well as a rebuilt original. Assuming your original carb has not been molested by Dr. Goodpliers, the Carter AFB MAY possibly be the easiest four-barrel to rebuild that was ever built! In the for what its worth category, the original Holley single two-barrel on my shop truck has been replaced with TWO AFB's, at a significant increase in both fuel economy AND power. Jon.
  18. In the for what it is worth category: Stromberg literature suggests that the 1915~1917 F.W.D. Model B used a Stromberg type G-3 carburetor; which was changed to a type M-3 (Stromberg number A-6063) for the 1918 model year. I do not have the identification number for the G-3 easily available (if at all). The G-3 is of the glass bowl style. The M-3 is all brass castings, and much superior to the type G. Jon.
  19. For reference, see Stromberg Carburetor Customer Index topic under General Discussion. I did not wish to place an ad in the discussion forum. Offering applications lists of Stromberg carburetors by customer (example: Buick, Cadillac, Twin City Tractor). Pricing: Individual company - $20.00 3 companies - $50.00 7 companies - $100.00 Payment via MasterCard, VISA, bank or postal money order, or personal or company check. PLEASE do NOT send a money order other than bank or postal, as my bank charges me a $55.00 fee to process them. (573) 392-7378 (9-4 Mon-Tues central time) Included with any size order will be my best guess as to what the various types of numbers actually mean. Jon.
  20. The Stromberg Carburetor Customer List is as complete as I can make it. The following documents (or groups of documents) have been combined into one database: (A) Stromberg card file dated 1918 (supposedly, these were sent to distributors, but have located only one group of cards, incomplete) (B) Stromberg Sales and Service Manual dated 1920 - available to distributors (C) Stromberg Sales and Service Manual dated 1926 (D) Stromberg Sales and Service Manual dated 1929 (E) Stromberg Sales and Service Manual dated 1937 (F) Experimental Carburetor Index - began in 1929, believe I have the only original, as it was kept in the Office of the Chief Engineer (G) Code Index - best guess is this was begun in 1934, again, believe I have the only original, also from the Office of the Chief Engineer (H) Existing drawings and blueprints - not complete. At some point these were archived on 500 foot rolls of microfilm - no fun! Have been working at this project since roughly 1980. There are 11,307 individual records in the database. The first task was to enter each individual record into the database. Each was typed, scanning was not possible. At the time, typos were hopefully eliminated (and hopefully, new ones were not introduced). Sample: Grass-Premier was often spelled Gross-Premier. Next was to attempt to get a uniform name for each customer. Example: Mack Trucks were about equally listed as Mack and International Motors (parent company). This was a nightmare! But done to the best of my ability. I will eventually prepare a CD of the data for the AACA library. Below is a copy of the index. Reference numbers 1 - 268 are original Stromberg code numbers. Reference numbers above 268 are numbers that I assigned to identify these companies. Sorry about the mis-aligned columns. Lining these things from one computer to another seems to be above my pay grade!!!!! Jon.

  21. Gary - I am NOT a petro engineer, so will leave the questions about additives to others. And while others may give a much better explanation of octane requirements, here is a link to an article on my website that might help: Jon.
  22. Gary - is the puddling actually fuel, or is it grease? That carburetor has a spot of lubrication on the counter-shaft, and I did not replace the original grease. It may have melted with heat, and a bit leaked out. I think the carb top may have a caption stating "oil under screw". This lubricates the countershaft, to prevent wear. Gasoline should not be present at this location during running (or it wouldn't run ). Gas may be present for a short time at this location when the engine has been shut off when hot, because of the nature of today's fuel. As far as carb gaskets being damp, again a function of modern fuel. I am happy to read of the improvement in running over the Marvel. I would have been very disappointed if there was no improvement (as you would have been). And to those amazed at finding an NOS carb, don't be; but as mentioned by others in this thread, new gaskets as well as compressed air through the passages (spiders) should be done before use. The important issues of NOS are: (1) no wear, and (2) no cobbling by "Dr. Goodpliers" (the evil twin of Mr. Goodwrench). And should you have additional carb issues, don't hesitate to call: (573) 392-7378 (9-4 Mon-Tues central time). And as others have mentioned, stop spending money on 94 octane. The lowest octane from a "name brand" station, hopefully without ethanol is what you should use. Even 87 octane is too high. A couple of degrees timing advance might prove beneficial. Jon.
  23. Possible, but I doubt it, and the CD and laser disc, while similar, are different. The CD is contained in its own special housing, whereas the laser disc is an individual item, like an LP. I have many of both, and working players for both. Jon.
