Like many of you, (sometimes unexplainable) I have a fascination with the Stromberg 97 and the other variations; big logo, small logo, 81, 48, LZ, etc. And, though I haven't been on here much for years, and to completely level with you, I feel like I left a little unfinished project with Bruce Lancaster (the neck up) and I (the fat fingers on the keyboard) had going years ago with tech on the 97's. Full disclosure, I can't hold the proverbial candle to what he knew. Lucky for us, much of his brain is left here, right here in our garage in the form of his thread replies. So, please feel free to chime in, take pics of your crap and post it up, too. My goal is just to "look" at some of the carbs I have and notice some of the subtleties. These 'ole things have survived many owners, who knows what, life after the depression, mad men drag racing and feeling rushed between heats, dropped on the concrete floor and you name it. Heck, they may have literally been to the salt flats and back! As we always say, if they could only tell their story.
