Can you identify this Stromberg Carb?

It's a cast iron U-2. Franklin used them on the last half of 1929 Series 13 production. They came in two sizes. One for the Series 135-137 engine and  one for the  smaller Series 130 engine.

 

It's a rare and excellent carburetor that can be safely rebuilt, unlike the crumbling potmetal T-2 and U-2 used on the earlier 1929's.

 

Look on the forward end of the  mounting flange.  Those three stamped numbers there should be either 130, or 135.  If you want to know more about it, pm me.

 

Here's a couple of  pictures of it's little brother for a 130 engine.

I have a 1929 Franklin 130 and I believe I have the same cast iron carburetor. Where can I get the rebuild kit for this carburetor? I have gas shooting out of the top of the primmer. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Call Jon and ask about your specific carburetor, he was very helpful with suggestions on rebuilding my UU-2 a couple years ago and warned me what issues I would have and how to avoid damaging things.
