    2 weeks ago i ordered a new carb kit for a stromberg ww for my 57 buick special, it's a 2 barrel. i ordered from carburetor doctor. i should have trusted my natural gut feeling about doctors to begin with. i've been sitting at work staring at my hands, wondering why they were working on the car. waiting by the door for the mailman. NOTHING! got a damn email today saying they are refunding my money because they dont have the kit. best of all was it was through paypal, they didnt even send me a slightly personal email..if you listen quietly, you can still hear the echos of my heart breaking. can anyone please guide me to a site where they don't only have 4 barrel kits for 350s. i have a 364 nailhead, 2 barrel stromberg ww, parts number 7-106. i am having no luck. thank you so much.

    I ordered a kit for a WW-108 a couple years ago from Andy Bernbaum - oldmoparts.com. I've had good luck with that company for years. Call them in person. Good luck.

    I use a place out of Florida for most of my kits, they have them in stock.

    ACM Auto Parts in Midtown Tennessee. The owners name is Adcox. Ask for him as he is the only one in the store that still uses the old books. He found a lot of rebuild stuff for me on my last 57 project. I have a real nice 57 carter 4-bl setting on the shelf but that doesn't help you. Also theres a studebakerparts.com that has some rebuild kits that might be what ur looking for. Good luck.
