  • Carb Float Don't Float

    My 1964 Wagonaire is on the road Daily, but the float has a small hole.
    I'm looking for one. it's from a 289 2 barrel Stromberg WW 6 130.
    She run fine, but i need a float. If someone has one, send me a PM.
    Thanks
    Steve

    Can you dry out and patch the float with epoxy?

      WW Strombergs used stamped brass float assemblies that should be readily repaired by locating the leak area and soldering as required. I have bought new floats from Studebaker International also, but I hadn't ordered any recently so I can't speak for the current availability.

        I just pulled a WW 6 130 off my car to swap in a 4bbl Carter AFB. I also have a second Stromberg (Thinking a 127 or 128). I don't need either and would part with them cheap. Shoot me a PM if interested.

          For clarification, the carb I pulled off my car was barely functional. I was going to do a rebuild on it, but my mechanic thought it might be too far gone even for a rebuild. Then I found a Carter AFB.
