1937 Stromberg float needle sticking


Recommended Posts

Here is one really stumping me. My recently finished 37 CE really isn’t.

i am having problems with float needle and seat. I have tried 3 different needles- 2 NOS, and 3 different seats. No matter what combination I use, I get a stuck open needle and gas running out of the top of the float chamber. But only now and then not all the time!

i have also rechecked the float for proper position in the bowl by measuring to equal recommended setting. 

The fuel pump is original engine driven pump so it seemingly can’t be too powerful. WTF!

I don’t want to burn this thing up going down the road.
