Thought the group might enjoy this. I mounted an old Stromberg air/gas adjuster to the horn/lights assembly n my speedster. Don't have to reach under the dash to the firewall.

You need to add the Stromberg OF carb that goes with it!

Hi Mark,
That's cool. I have one of the Strombergs similar to the one shown in the ad which came with my car. Is there an advantage to them? I am using the Holley NH.Stromberg Carb

Stan you've been rebuilding various models of the Stromberg line of carburetors. If it wouldn't be to much to ask could you rate the model numbers and your experience with their rebuild & performance? I selfishly would like to know myself, I have 2 OF,&1 LF. I just saw a listing for an RF on the sight.thanks in advance John

Both Stan and I are big fans of the OF. The RF is just as good but has issues sometimes with corrosion, being made of zinc / pot metal.

The LF is not as good in my opinion. Pretty looking but not an improvement of any magnitude over an ordinary Holley NH.

Will; I have Stromber OFs on both of my T's that Stan rebuilt. You won't regret it!

I must be missing out on an aspect of the Model T experience, I set my mixture control when the car is warming up in the garage and then never touch it while I'm driving.

I guess I'll try fiddling with it during a drive to see what improvements I get. :-)

I think there's a difference in garage setting and road setting due to differing conditions. On the road the engine is under load and also likely to be running faster. Takes more gas.

I fiddle with both the air/gas and spark on the road to fine tune as needed. Kind of a sport for me to find the best combination.
