What's your reason for wanting to change from the stock Stromberg WW?

Deepnhock makes a very nice adapter to put the Holley 2-bbl on Stude intakes.

Linkage may need minor fiddling. Some have electric chokes, some manual chokes and some no chokes at all. It is possible to retrofit the heat tube choke, but not sure why anyone would want to.

As Mr. Biggs said, got to be a good reason, as it is usually less expensive in the long run to have the Stromberg professionally rebuilt, since increased performance is not part of your equation.

thnx, jv.

Yeah, by the time you buy a new carb, adaptor, finagle linkage and figure out whatever the choke's gonna want - better off to get your tired WW rehabbed by Dave T-bow. Dave does more than just "kit" your carb. New throttleshaft bushings, reseals the body of the carb, etc.. Not cheap, but then, good work never is!;)

Dave Thibeault (T-bow) does a pretty quick turnaround on 2-barrels for $175.
