  • WW6 Choke

    Mine has a manual choke and the carb needs a rebuild anyways. Did these come with an auto choke and can you get replacements for them? If not, I'll just replace the cable that is kind of cruddy. Thanks.

    I assume you are talking about a Stromberg WW 2-BBL carburetor?
    If so... these came in (2) different automatic choke styles. I refer to them as "High-Choke and Low-Choke". The High-choke model was used until 1961 or so... then the low-choke was used until the end.

    They also changed how the air cleaner was affixed.. I'd have to see yours to tell which carb might be better for you.

    Cores for these are very common..(I have LOTS).. and they are easy to rebuild. You have to watch for excessive wear in the throttle-shaft though...
