Has anyone had any experience with the Stromberg R-1 carburetors? I just won one off ebay for a good price and it looks like it might do the job size wise.

They are good carburetors, the last design made by Stromberg that used the float cap type of needle valve. Used on a few cars in 29-30, then Stromberg went to a more modern design. Biggest problem with them is that nearly every float bowl is rusted through at the bottom. No other carburetor uses the same parts so you have to keep buying R-1's until you get a good bowl.

Thank you Stan. I have my fingers crossed! :-)
