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

STROMBERG PHOTOS--CARBS-PARTS-ETC.


I have changed the needle and seat design as of January, 2011.  I will post some pictures later. 

Following are some pictures of restored carbs. There are more on the "Additional Rebuilds" page.  Click the link!!

Note the button head cap screws on some of the OF photos.  I no longer use those.  I machined a bunch of new original style plugs and have found that they work just as well and look more original.  
The pictures are old.
 
Note that some of these pictures were taken before I began powder coating the steel parts.  I need to do a new set of OF pictures and change them but I am so busy in the shop I don't have much time to fool with the web site.

The one in the center of the bottom row is an RF, which is the aluminum bodied carb that replaced the OF.  I can restore some of those but need to see it before I make any promises.  The main problem with the RF is that the idle jet - which is brass - can't be unscrewed from the aluminum body.  I now just drill it out, make a new idle jet and install it.  It is included in the RF price.  

Note the two different versions of the OF.  The one in the upper left corner has the "Gas Cleaner," the others do not.  They are very similar otherwise, only a few small differences in the idle jet, the choke rod, etc. 














This is the way many come in.  This is actually a good carb, it is all complete, the steel parts are not rusty and the screws are not stripped or broken. 
                                                                                                                                                                 


Here is a group being cleaned and ready for rebuild.


These are the OF idle jets I manufacture.  They are available for purchase, $25.00


These are screws to hold the economizer arm in place.  The broken one at the bottom is typical of the way they come in.  They are 1/4 x 32 tpi.   See price list at the bottom of the prices and information page. 



There are new float caps.  This piece is missing on about half of the ones I get it.  Some of them have the threads ruined from some one trying to rethread the cap with a 7/16 x 20 tap when it needs to be a 7/16 x 24.  All of the threads on the Stromberg are special threads, most are 24 tpi.  See prices at the bottom of the prices and information page. 



This is the roller replacement on the economizer arm.  Most of the originals have a flat spot worn on the roller that stops the arm from opening the economizer correctly.  These stainless steel rollers should last forever. 



This one is not nearly as bad as it looks.  All that dirt and grease will come off. 



New Throttle shafts.  This is an earlier design, the new ones are made on a milling machine and use a collar on the lower shaft to hold the shaft more securely. 

Here are a couple ready to go in the box. 
The one on the right was requested to be restored without powder coating the steel parts.




Below are a couple I recently did for a guy who is running an OF on a Fronty.  He is hand cranking it and wanted a drain he could reach easily down in behind the steering column so I added a drain to each carb.  The one on the left was as close to NOS as I have seen, clean inside and out. 










These three were recently done for a collector from New York. 







Here is one with a black float cover.  Note also the new production throttle arm with a set screw collar on the throttle shaft.  This is a new item I am producing.
All screws are stainless steel.  The adjustment balls and springs are also replaced so the high and low speed adjustments do not move once they are set.
