Purchased a Stromberg OF from Stan Howe and installed it on my 1915 which ran great for one day. Went out there the next day, turned on the gas and then watched it pour out of the carb. I discovered that the float was leaking and that was the reason for failure to shut the gas to the carb off.
Between the phone and emails Stan sent me another float (no cost to me) which I installed and adjusted today. He offered a completely new card, a full refund, etc. The car runs great and I am very happy with the carb.
Just wanted to let folks know how happy I am with Stan's product and customer service.
In the process I had "lost" the Stromberg book Stan had provided which he quickly replaced at no charge to me.
Good Guys aren't that hard to find on this FORUM and Stan definitely fits the bill.
I also purchased a OF from Stan. Put it on my 1911 and it is a completely different car. I love it. The only leak I have is a pin hole in my left axle that I will fix later this week. I have another OF carb that needs Stan's expertise. I will be sending it to him one of these days. I will put that one on my speedster.
Can someone give me Stan's phone nunber and address. I have a Stromberg OF that I would like to have rebuilt. Tom Elliott
