  • Air cleaner (new picture)

    I have a Stromburg WW 2 barrel and very interesting air cleaner (Stock 1959) for it. On the top of the air cleaner there is a hole for a threaded stud to stick out of, so you can spin your trusty wingnut on and tighten it down to keep the nastys out of your carb/engine. [}] Here is were it gets interesting, there is not a spot in or around the carb for the threaded stud. I'm sure that if my repair manuel were not in storage I could easily look this up and save everyones time. I can't figure it out, am I missing a part or two? [V]

    You need the factory clamp on adapter with built in stud.

      Randy, this is the only picture I have of my carb with a reasonable view of the airhorn. There is supposed to be a bracket that attaches to the airhorn and the stud is attached to this. This is a Stromberg WW on the 1964 289 engine I bought. I hope this helps.

            Any chance someone has the part number, I purchased what I thought was one but I'm guessing I gave the wrong discription of what I wanted because when I got it in the mail it's not the same clamp as Tom has pictured above. Thanks for all your help.

              Randy, it may not be the same as Tom's, but will it work on your car? Never hurts to ask.

                    Randy, sounds like you may have bought a 6 cylinder one.

                      JDP, I sent you a note off forum,

                      This is the clamp I purchased perhaps someone can help identify it.

                        Looks like the clamp to hold the air cleaner on a 50's Champion 6.

                          Dick is correct, this is the clamp that goes at the bottom of the old United oil bath air cleaners to hold them in place. Perhaps JP will take it in trade???

                              Dodge trucks (as well as many other vehicles) used the Stomberg WW forever[]. We had a '65 318 with that type of clamp, and my '56 259 Dodge p/u had that type of clamp, also. So you might check local wrecking yards and see if they are the same.
