Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2014: Bruckners Stromberg "OF" off and running

Got a day off and some time so I did get this carb dialed in and spent some seat time driving around on a beautiful day. This carburetor runs as well as advertised and was a great project. Very smooth and responsive with all around better drivability. Thanks to the forum members for all the help and resources. I found it hilarious that the original manual stated that if there is any rubbing of the carb on the frame, you are to file away at the frame. Glad I didn't have to do any of that.

One issue I had was the kaboom of my muffler for the second time while I was in the "dial in" fase. Gave me a reason to use my spare muffler.

Maybe I should weld this one together.....

Nothing runs as nice as an OF for all around driving. Glad you got it going. I've been working so much this week I hadn't looked at the forum. Didn't realize you were working on your OF.

Stan, your help on several occasions has been very valuable. Thanks again for being willing to share your hard earned knowledge/techniques.

You were so right about the bolt hole spacing being non T on that particular "OF". I did find a creative fix for that as can be seen in the photos linked to the previous thread.

My foam air filter even fits it perfectly. That was not the case with the stromberg "LF" I had been running. The LF was nice and a big advance over the standard NH in smoothness and ease of running. I can see how the OF is an even better carb than the LF and should perform well for a long time.

Erich, how about some pictures? Would a standard hot air pipe fit?

Mark not sure about the hot air pipe, but I assume it would as the filter adapter I am using fits standard T carb.

Here is a link to the other thread with the photo link and the rest of the story.

Here is a picture my beautiful Stan Howe Stromberg OF carburetor and the air filter that I made for it.

Nice. Paint the air cleaner chrome black and it will look the part.

Mark, after re-reading the original manual, it does show and state the original hot air pipe is used with this carb and the whole "hot-spot" set up.
