Please note that I am not accepting repair work at this point and will not be accepting any new work until August or September of 2016 or possibly later. I am still selling carburetors and welcome inquiries or orders but I am so buried in repair work that I need to get caught up in the shop before I take any more work in.  I am 30 or more carbs behind and I can only work so much so I am looking at a couple months to get caught up a little.  I am getting old, not as healthy or ambitious as I used to be and I have two other businesses and a couple little ranches.  At this point I have not had a real day off for close to a year.  You can email me at stanhowemt@aol.com with questions or to be placed on the list to be contacted when I can take in more work.  

Thanks, Stan Howe

I am now back in the shop and have a good stock of OF's to rebuild -- should have several ready to go within the next two or three weeks.  Since I now have all the steel parts for the OF - which I had laser cut last year - OF's are much easier to rebuild.  The next project will be to have the accelerating venturi for the updraft Strombergs cast, then the choke inlets -- those will hopefully be done this coming year.  

I now have about 600 or more OF's on the road.  Some are ones I rebuilt for other people or ones I rebuilt and sold.  Probably most other models of Stromberg in addition to the OF's and many Zenith, Rayfield and other brands. Probably well over a couple thousand carbs total.  I don't keep track.  

I also have a pretty good stock of other Stromberg models that I can rebuild on order.  I usually have an OE-1 ready to go and quite often an OS-1.  I usually have two or three of these larger side drafts for those of you who are going to one of the new Rajo heads or want more flow on your T.  They run great on a "hopped up" engine. 

I recently rebuilt an OX3 for a car out of the Blackhawk collection in California.  The owner had taken it home after a loan period to the museum and couldn't get it to run correctly.  They sent the carb out for a rebuild and when it came back it still wouldn't run.  They sent it to me, I found a broken off "easy out" in the main jet and JB weld smeared all over the inside of the air intake -- trying to stop an accelerator well leak, I think.  I machined a new venturi tube for it, fixed the main jet and did the rest.  There are some pictures of it on another page.  There are also pictures of some OS-1's that I rebuilt as well as two Rayfield side draft carbs for Model T Fords.  Take a look at all the pages. 

I try to have carbs in stock and ready to rebuild but they are harder and harder to find in restorable condition and I am too busy to keep an actual inventory.  If you are looking for a specific model call or email and I will check.  

Please check the prices and information page for exact prices of various models.  
 
I now have reproduction parts for all the steel parts for the OF -- they are for sale as well as being used on my rebuilds as necessary.  They are powder coated in a medium gray color.  I also do some other upgrades on the OF, notice the 9/16 cap on the gas inlet to replace the slotted one that was originally used.  This carb also has a new float cover cap -- which I machine from brass stock.  

This carb is from 11-2015.

 



Below are some older photos of carbs I did then.  
 

JANUARY 24TH, 2010.
THIS ONE WENT TO AUSTRALIA.





 



These are not for sale.  They were rebuild jobs and have been returned. 



Three rebuilt and ready to go.  Notice the difference between the designs.  The lower right has the "Gas cleaner," the other two do not.  The gas cleaner was the earlier of the two designs.  

This is a site dedicated to the Stromberg OF accessory carburetor built for the Model T Ford between 1919 & 1925.  However, I also rebuild other models of Stromberg carburetors as well as other brass carburetors of the same era. I can  rebuild most other models of bronze Stromberg carbs, I need to know the Model number or letter. I have done a lot of OE's, OX-2's, OS-1 & 2's and many others.

I offer rebuilding service, sales of rebuilt carburetors and also manufacture some replacement parts for them.  I manufacture a modern needle and seat set to replace the troublesome needle & seat used in most Stromberg carburetors of the era.  I also manufacture idle jets, sell gaskets and parts, etc.  I can manufacture a needle and seat conversion for virtually any brass era carburetor using a modern Viton tipped needle and brass seat.  I can machine new venturis for the Stromberg & Zenith carbs as well. 

I have well over 1000 carburetors now on the road giving satisfaction.  

I now have in production a needle and seat conversion set for the larger Stromberg carbs.  It comes as a kit and is easy to install, no need to remove the carburetor from the car.  Total time to install should be less than one hour from start to finish.

They are shown on page two.  Scoll down to the bottom of the page.

I have many other Stromberg carbs for sale as well as some duplicates from my Model T Accessory Carburetor collection. 

I do not rebuild Holly NH but do other early Model T carbs, -- the Holleys, Kingstons and other early brass -- the Kingston 4 Ball, U & J and some others.

Here are some pictures of restorations .  Note the choke stop, this is a new part I am making as most of the old ones are rusted away.
