The larger Zenith (left, top) is an HP5A.

I'm looking for a rebuild kit or gaskets for a Stromberg SF-3 carb. Can you help?

The Stromberg OFs and the Zenith HP5A are sold. The Stromberg LFs and the other Zenith are still available. Here is a better photo of the Zenith, together with parts. It is painted in a good 2 part paint that should stand up to gasoline. These carbs have a pot metal venturi. It is intact but cracked. The body is good. As you can see, the body on the parts carb is cracked. I will let it go for the first reasonable offer. I'd like to get $150 each for the LFs.

If you take a punch and tap the venturi where is shows through the hole it will probably collapse pretty easily. If not, it easily presses out the front opening. It is virtually a no-lathe-skills project to make a venturi out of Aluminum for them. The little screw just ahead of the open hole holds it in. Good project if you are ready to move on past NH's and Kingston L's.

They actually run quite well.
