I am lucky in that I have a trio of vintage Large Logo Stromberg 97s which I plan to re-install on my Edelbrock 573 manifold. They will need to be rebuilt and Im not sure which direction to go. The engine is a stock 292 Y-Block and Im looking for a good streetable and cruising setup in my 63 F100 Long Uni. Im trying to decide if I should re-built the ones I have or if I should buy a set of the new 97s from Stromberg (BTW the Speedway 97 knock-offs are not even a consideration). I have done some on-line research and the potential vendors/re-builders I have identified are: The Stromberg Company, The Hot Rod Company, 97 Heaven, Mr. Stromberg, and Vintage Speed. The new 97s cost $449 ($475 with the choke attachment for the center carb). A new rebuilt one (no core required) ranges from $355 to $405, and a rebuild of my cores will run between $195 and $235. (Note: I estimate my cores are worth $125-150 each.) Its not like money isnt an object, but Im willing to spend the extra if I can be reasonably assured that I will have a better operating carburetor system. But I dont want to spend almost $1,500 on a setup if I can spend ½ that and get the same results. Any thoughts from you guys on which direction you would recommend and have any of you had any experience with any of these vendors/rebuilders to make a recommendation. Or is there someone else out there that offers a better service? Thanks in advance.
