Stromberg Carburetor Code Book


Recommended Posts

After years of transcribing, I now have the complete Stromberg Code Book digitized, and able to print "readable" information. While "readable" in quotations? The original code book (I have the original single copy, and a photocopy I did for off-site backup 40 years ago) was mostly typed, but on lined paper, and the typewritten information didn't always square with the lines. Additionally, most later entries were hand-written in red pencil, which over a period of 60-80 years has faded.

 

The code book contains an index of carburetors produced for specific companies, both original and aftermarket replacement, from roughly 1925 (some earlier) to 1974 (last production Stromberg carburetor). There are no calibration specifications, but I can provide those at additional cost for a large majority of the carburetors listed.

 

This book is one of my main reference guides when choosing a replacement carburetor to replace original carbs which are either simply no longer available, or extremely pricey. These carbs were selected and calibrated by engineers for specific applications.

 

I will print and mail these 8 1/2 by 11 laser printed copies at $20./company or $50./3 companies or $100/7 companies. Above 7 companies $12./company.

 

A list of companies and the associated Stromberg code number follows:
