Here is an update to the business:
As with everyone else, I am getting older and slowing down some.  I no longer work 16 hour days and from this time on will not be working in the shop 6 or 7 days a week as I have for the last 15 years.  I plan to cut back to no more than 4 days in the shop per week, hopefully leaving at least a little time and ambition to do some other things that need doing and that I want to do.  
If you have a carburetor that you want back in time for the summer tours you need to send it in as soon as possible.  I am always behind and have some time away from the shop planned this spring to go to a couple swap meets and also to try to reseed some pastures and work on some projects that need doing.  

Note that you need to call or email me before sending any work.

Also, note that I no longer work on any stock Model T Ford carburetor newer than Holley G.  Model T carbs now consist of far less than 15% of my work and I cannot take time from those carbs to work on what many others are rebuilding such as NH's, etc.  I do often have some earlier Ford carbs in stock as I buy every one I can find and afford.  I recently sold an early Holley for the 1907 Ford NRS, two Holley 4500's, etc.  Check the inventory page or call as I seldom have time to update these pages.  

This is from earlier:  
I am back in the shop and working every day, rebuilding and selling carburetors.  I got a lot done over the winter but am ALWAYS behind.  I am working on the back log of repairs and for the most part, try to get them out in the order they came in.  This time of year I am getting a lot of work in so it will be some time before you get your carb back if you send it in.  I try to get orders out for carbs that are sold as soon as possible but have NO stock of rebuilts on the shelf ready to go, all the ones I rebuilt over the winter have already sold and either are gone or will be within a few weeks.  
New arrivals, special interest and rare carbs are on the SPECIAL CARBS FOR SALE tab, click it to see what I have. 
You can call me at 406-949-3448 or email me at stanhowemt@aol.com.  I try to answer every call as it comes in but you may have to leave me a message.  I will call you back as soon as possible and answer emails as soon as I can get a minute or two to do so.

Thank you for the support of this little one old man business.   


Thanks, Stan Howe

Additional Rebuilds




This is an OX3 Stromberg recently rebuilt for a 1926 Chrysler in California 





Here is a side view of the same carburetor 




This is a recent group of restorations. 
Front row - left to right Rayfield Model T accessory, Kingston 4 Ball for Model T, Rayfield Model T.
Second row  Stromberg OF's
Third row.  Stromberg OS-1's, the middle one has the adapter to fit on a Model T Ford manifold. 



Here are three OS-1's ready to go.  These are a great speedster carb as they are just slightly bigger than an OF, have more performance and have the desirable accelerating well for better performance but still start and idle very well, which a lot of larger throat carbs don't. 



Here are two very rare carbs.  These are the Rayfield's that were made for accessory carbs for the Model T Ford near the end of Model T production.  They did not sell particularly well in the day and are very hard to find in restorable condition.  These are two of only three I have ever found.  Both are sold and running on fast speedsters.  One in California and one in Kansas. 



This is a closeup of an OS-1. 
These were standard equipment on a lot of the small Studebakers from about 1920 to 28.  They are very nice carbs and have the accelerating well and economizer for better performance and excellent economy.  The have a horizontal throttle shaft so have to have a bell crank for the throttle rod if mounted on a Model T manifold as well as an adapter for the flange.  They are only about 1/2 inch wider than an OF but have a 1 3/16th throat for much better performance, especially at high speed and full power operation. 



Below is a recently restored Kingston 4 Ball, correct for 1913-1914 Model T Ford. 
The problem with these has always been the needle and seat.  I now have a modern needle and seat conversion for these that does not change the outer appearance of the carburetor.  It has a Viton tipped needle in a hard brass seat and should out last any Model T Ford it is mounted on.  I do have to have your carburetor to machine the bowl to accept the seat and install the needle. 
This fix solves most of the problems with people trying to run the correct carburetor on their car.  These run quite well when they are set up correctly. 

I also have new correct weight balls for the air bleeds.
I can make a needle and seat conversion for any size of Kingston "Ball Type" carburetor and recently made one for a very small 5 ball from a 1907 Brush car. 


Price for carb rebuild with installation of new needle and seat, etc. is $325 + $20 return shipping. 



This is a Stromberg M-3  They were used on large trucks and tractors and make an excellent period
correct carburetor for large brass era cars.  This one is going on a National. 
This is a large carburetor with a 3 inch flange and a 1 5/16 throat. 









Stromberg OE-2  This is a larger version of the popular OE-1 and runs very well on mid sized engines or Model T Ford engines with overhead conversions, stroker cranks, etc.  It will not run out of air as some of the smaller carbs do.  These are very hard to find but they are wonderful carbs with all of the Stromberg features that make their carbs so good.  It has the accelerating well for instant acceleration and no stumbling on pickup, the economizer for automatically leaner mixture at low throttle settings and a main feeder jet which can be sized for best mixture on individual engines.  Another nice feature of these is that the throttle actuator and choke actuator can easily be moved to either side of the carb body for various installations.  The throttle arm can be placed in any position in 360 degrees so it can be set up to move forward and back or up and down. 
As with all Stromberg carbs, it comes with an illustrated instruction sheet.  









This is an OD-1 They were used on early Willys cars and as a replacement for the stock Dodge carburetor and are hard to find.  They do run well and as you can see, have the same economizer setup at the Stromberg OF used on the Model T.  They are basically a larger version of an OF.  The choke horn can be moved to either up or down position.  This is a little larger than an OF but can still be mounted to a stock T manifold with an adapter that moves it in closer to the engine and away from the frame.  The mounting flange is larger and has a lip on it that can either be ground off or fitted to the adapter.  There is another slightly different model OD-1also.  





This is one of several OX-2's I've rebuilt.  They were standard on many Hupmobiles and optional on some other cars.  They are a popular speedster carburetor on Model T's with overhead conversions. 



This OX-2 went to Oslo, Norway for installation on one of the
only 1923 Moon Roadsters known to exist.








This OE-1 came off a 1920 Hupmobile.  It cleaned up very nicely.







OE-1's -- with the bowl in line with the body instead of off to the side --  are very attractive carbs and popular for speedsters as well as for upgrades on a lot of 20's engines that have poor carbs on them.
