  1. Has anyone tried cleaning their carburetor with these sonic cleaners? Tore my Carter updraft down and put it in the sonic cleaner, 4 parts distilled water, one part Simple Green. Watched the carburetor become new again in about an hour. Float looks like brand new. Reassembled it and it runs better than ever! Am I the last one on this bandwagon? I guess they have been doing it with motorcycle carburetors for years? The best part is my hands smell like simple green not old gas and carburetor cleaner (for the next two days).
  2. I am looking for a Stromberg Aerotype Carburetor for a 1937 Buick Roadmaster Series 80. It has the Fireball 320 ci Inline 8. My grandpa and I have looked everywhere to find parts for this thing and are not having any luck. The car was parked 12 years ago because the carburetor is to blame for it not running very good. The previous owner bypassed the auto-choke by bending the lever that connects the mechanism to that part of the carburetor. He installed a manual choke in order to get it to run. We wish to return it to factory original. We have found a couple of places that sell rebuild kits for the carburetor but no where can we find the upper portion to replace it. The current carb we have is complete just not fully functioning. If anyone has one for sale or knows someone who does it would be appreciated. I am totally out of ideas. We want to keep the car as original as possible. The Model is an A-22 or 22-A from what info I can find on it.
  3. We are trying to find enough people that need this part so we can get it reproduced. Picture is below. Typically the bottom is hardened or rotted out from gas exposure. This is found on 1952-56 Nash cars. Email ambo49@gmail.com to get on the list. Inside diameters carb side is 2 5/16" Air filter side is 3"
  4. Having some issues with our original carb and rebuilding it does not help as the choke is broken as well as a few other issues. Love to find an NOS, Rebuilt, or a carb in better condition than ours! Send me a PM through the forum if you have one....Thanks! Let me know the condition, price and shipping (to Boise, ID) and any other info you have on it. Thanks and take care! (ours has the 719 on it but the 720 was also used on these or so I'm told)
  5. Hi, I just bought for my french grandfather a 1922 Buick Raodster from Chicago. The car has a great look (see pic next to his 1932 Citroen C6 G) but the trouble comes when then engine gets warm. My Grandfather (80 Years old) has been restauring lots of WWII military vehicle but he is not so familiar with the pre war american engine. So I'm posting here hoping to get a little help from people who must know a bunch about these engines :-) Here are the symptoms and facts that we've found : - Start fairly easly with a little chock and idle no problem then - the chock handle has to be set about 1/8 clock wise from the hot position in order to idle properly - The engine just stop when setting the chock anywhere else counterclock wise from the position described above - When the engine gets warm the engine slowly stall, and when puting some gas it keeps runing but we can't drive it, it stall after a few meter - we changed the coil, capacitor, and all the spark plug but it didn't help - The battery is charging - there is a good compression (really hard to turn the engine manually) So we start thinking about the carburator that is not working properly when the air from manifold gets hot. From what I read on the forum the carb on this car is not easy to adjust. So before we take it apart do you have some tips, advice, ideas that could help us on our problems I added pic of the carb view in the Manual Uploaded with ImageShack.us
  6. Hey guys, my carbs pot metal expanded and may only be usable for another year or two. Currently, with the shape of the carb, the car runs, but roughly. Please let me know if anyone has any available and their condition. Ethan
  7. To All, I just purchased a 1927 Buick 2dr Sedan. Solid car. My initial intent was to upgrade the suspension and put a small v6 Buick motor in it to have a fun driver. But after looking at the engines condition I decided to see if I could get her running. Put a new coil in and fixed one of the wires and was able to get good spark to the plugs. If I spray starter fluid into the cylinders it actually runs albeit for a short period of time. Took the carb off and cleaned it good - replaced the cork float with a wine bottle cork?? - its all I had! The vaccum pump was bone dry and had a lot of sludge so I mounted a small lawn mower tank in its place and direct fed into the original fuel bowl. Shop manual says gas is gravity fed from the vacumm pump - not sure that is accurate - but thought if that is true my simple in line gas tank should work temporarily to see if she runs. Still don't think I am getting the proper gas flow from carb. I read another thread on our site and heard about the conversion to down draft. Is that as simple as it sounds and looks? I would appreciate any pointers from the experts out there - this is a first for me. Still thinking converting to newer engine, suspension etc. but now I am on a mission to get it running. Thanks in advance for your help.
  8. I found the links below for complete Parts Manuals for Chrysler years as indicated. The scans are very good quality and good pdf files although all the chapters are separate rather than compiled as one pdf with many chapters. There is also a link for 1950-65 Chrysler Carb/Ignition Parts Book and the 1964 Chrysler Options & Prices. Just thought I would share the wealth of information I found here with everyone here.

  9. I have a Studebaker Model (Carb)-Stromberg Motor Device, updraft Carb that was found (being used) on a Model A ford intake manifold I purchased. After an on-line search, I believe this carb is used on 1923 Franklin Cars...but not sure. It is patented in 1916, 1918. Label states 'Also Models 0 & lS -Oct 25-21, Models O-OC-OF-OS and LS July 12-21, Models L-LB-M-MB-O-OC-OS & LS Jan 31-22. What is it...anyone know? What cars was it used on? What is its value? I will likely post in on Ebay. It is froze-up but looks rebuildable and complete. The main casting is bronze and has OE-1 2486665 on the bronze casting. Contact me on email marinecorpspitbull@yahoo.com if you have any info on what this carb is or need one. Thanks<!-- google_ad_section_end -->
