Stromberg 175 CD Carburetor (and Stromberg Adjustment Tools)
The Stromberg 175CD (constant depression) carb is substantially different from the SU carb, although the operating principles are similar. If your Stromberg is over rich, runs poorly on closed throttle, or seems to consume damper oil faster than gasoline, then we can make it perform like new again. All rebuilds include new: Hydrin (not nitrile) piston diaphragm, fuel needle assembly, jet orifice, throttle shaft seals and shields, needle adjuster o-ring where fitted, float valve, vacuum chamber screws, and all gaskets.
For those 175CD’s that use a bypass valve a modification can be provided at no extra cost to eliminate the troublesome and ineffective deceleration system. It will provide off-throttle engine braking and a faster return to a more repeatable idle speed.
When rebuilt properly Stromberg carburetors will return good fuel mileage and smooth power. Please enquire regarding the rebuilds of these carburetors whether they be on Jaguar 4.2, TR6, Volvo B21A, or any of the other applications Strombergs were used.
Italian Made Spring Clamps
On most SU’s the fuel pipes are 1⁄4 inch outside diameter, and that's just too small for the screw type clamps with perforated bands. The hose oozes through the perforations, they need constant tightening, damage the hose, can distort the pipe, and are tough to remove. We now have a supplier of the Italian made spring clamps appropriate to the hose used on SU and Stromberg carbs. They install with a pair of pliers, provide a constant gentle clamping force, slide back easily to allow quick removal of the hose, and look great.
Three of them are included with any carb rebuild pair that uses hose connections and more are available at very little cost.
