Are many guys building rods right now using Stromberg style carburetors?

You know I really tried to restrain myself form saying anything, but I can't. Just what century are you guys in? This seems to be a question of; do you use 1940's technology in the age of electronic fuel injection?

Soon radial engined, prop powered airliners and steam locomotives will be making a comeback, along with operator assisted long distance phone calls, Milton Berle on the black and white TV, etc.

Actually come to think of it that might not be so bad! Now, where did I leave my cell phone?

Actually I have not yet made up my mind..I thought using those would be cool but the ones I found were shot..I may yet do the megasquirt deal as I am liking the idea of injection..Even tho the learning curve may be a bit steep..

Some folks actually like the old school look on their Rods. I guess you don't.
I think a simple... No would have answered his question.... no bash session needed.

They sure are hot on Ebay and at the swap meets I removed mine and replaced with the Six Shooter for the aforementioned reasons they just are not reliable although a company in England is now making a complete repro 97 carb. What I was actually hoping for was an EFI version like Moon Eyes had for a short period. The look with out the hassle

Yeah I was trying to be tongue-in-cheek about the Strombergs. Except for my old Harley, I haven't built anything retro in decades and nothing with Stombergs since my 53 Merc powered 34 Ford pick-up which was a long time ago.

In the past decade or so I haven't built anything without fuel injection, probably because where I live you can't and run it on the street. So carburetors, let alone Strombergs, aren't in my thoughts much. Imagine my surprise at the original question!

What were you doing unbolting it? One should die lying over it in a final act of protective defiance against the SMOG police.

well i would perfer fuel injection. but when the car is vintage racing (vscda) it "has to" have the orginal parts. while the car i mentioned had both stromeis and roschesters on it.. it had to be per period... and yes i had to rework it due to stripped bolts and to improved linkages..
