Any comments from someone using the Model"D" Schebler?
Those Stromberg carbs have a spring loaded secondary air inlet for smoother transition between speeds, which seems like a good idea. Unfortunately the air flow has to follow a tortured path to get to the intake manifold. This hurts performance compared to a simpler, straight path.
I have one of the type "B" Strombergs with intake for a Model T in the 1" size. It is new old stock, there are lots of them around in new condition for some reason. There's one on eBay right now just like mine for $495. I paid less than $200 for mine last year on eBay.
The Scheblers all make the air go 90 degrees, again a poor idea. They run smooth and work fine, just don't perform as well as other carbs with similar inlet venturi sizes.
Thanks for the perspective Royce. It is amazing what keeps coming up on eBay.
I have one that is in much better shape.
Seems to be about 1915 vintage from the advertising - and it suits a pre generator car, since the Stroberg B carb would be in the way of a 1919-27 generator.
