Schebler Model R

Recommended Posts

Hello ,

My limited literature list four different venturi sizes for this carb.

The application is a 1916 Studebaker six , 354 cubic inch and has a 

1-3/8'' inlet at the intake.

I have several Stromberg carbs that will fit but would like to build up an original if possible.

What was the original size?

Jon, you out there?

Thanks,

Dennis

Dennis - I have 147 different NUMBERED Schebler model R carburetors in my database; plus a host of others that I have no numeric reference. Of course, Schebler did not deem it necessary to put the numbers on the carburetors. Have fun trying to identify them. The one used by Studebaker on the 354 is one for which I have no number.

Thanks again Jon,

Pictures I guess?

Since I have  1-3/8'' at the intake, should I look at 1-1/4'' or 1-1/2'' at the carb? I don't see a 1-3/8" for the model R.

Dennis - I honestly don't know.

 

I do know that "sizes" in this time period violate the "truth in advertising" idea.

 

If it were mine, I would try to find another Studebaker owner that thinks he has an original, and get pictures and measurements.

 

Jon.
