I have a Stromberg OE-1 carburetor and don't know what car it's for. It is an updraft and has a 1 & 1/4" throat, so it must be for a pretty large car. Can anyone help?
I'm sure Stan Howe can. I have two of them and he rebuilt both of them for me. Each are slightly different (choke and throttle levers and intake housing at the choke). Most came from 6 cylinder Studebakers and maybe some other similar cars. Mounted on a T engine with an A intake; he claims it will really 'wake a T up'.
Series 11 Franklin (1925-1927) comes to mind for the OE-1.
1923 6 207 EM (Light Six - Late) Stromberg OE-1
As you can see from the picture, Stan does a beautiful job. It is almost too pretty to get grease or gas stained. The blue air cleaner is from a 27 or 28 Dodge 4.
Studebaker light six, Hupmobile, Franklin -- with a mount for the fumer, replacement for factory carb on quite a few cars including Chevrolet.
Thank you all for your help on this.
Shameless promotion: I'll have this and other parts for sale at the Belvidere, IL Swap Meet (put on by the Rockford, IL Model T Club) on May 18th.
Thanks again, Keith
I am building a speedster. My engine is a 1925. 60 years ago I reversed my model A intake manifold installed a stromberg 94 carb and the model A really performed well. I did have to modify the manifold to accept the carb. I still have the manifold and want to consider using it on my T speedster. Your thoughts, advice.I don't see any T's with a real downdraft setup.
Main real problem with using a downdraft on any car without a fuel pump is the high location of the carb in relation to the tank. You'll probably need an electric fuel pump.
