Carburetor for 1926 DB?

Recommended Posts

My question, having also just received the club newsletter is why research for an aftermarket carburettor when the originals are easily available, very inexpensive to buy, simple in their operation and work very well?

I didn’t get that newsletter. But that’s what I was going to ask. What’s wrong with the original?

Absolutely nothing is wrong with the original. Nor the spare I rebuilt. If it goes with my car I have to collect it.

The listing ended because I bought it. I would still like to know more information about this carburetor.

The Detroit Lubricator (Stewart) model 25 is an excellent carburetor for its day.

 

The Stromberg MD is an excellent carburetor for its day.

 

The Detroit Lubricator has the advantage of being original.

 

The Stromberg MD is somewhat more user-friendly from a rebuilding standpoint, and parts are somewhat easier to acquire for the MD than the 25.

 

Cannot really go wrong with either.

So is that why they newsletter recommended it? I just renewed my membership a few days ago, so I haven’t received the newsletter in some time.

I got the carburetor. It’s a little rough. I am not entirely sure how it functions. Especially the two threaded holes on top.

For anyone who reads this post and knows about the standard Stewart carburetor,

there motor lags. The carburetor farts and pops. It is recently rebuilt. I recently rebuilt the vacuum tank because it was pouring raw fuel down the vacuum line.

Not yet, I haven’t figured out what the two holes on top is.

Oh. Hopefully someone has the info. I’m anxious to hear the results.

I think you will find those holes are threaded. They had adjustment screws in them and the little clips keep the screws from turning.
