    Brand new, flame thrower coil and electronic ign. It runs fine with choke very slightly on. After talking to a carb tech I am looking into a possible blockage in one passage below the power valve.

      I am not a huge fan of strombergs either, but there is no reason why it should not work correctly if everything is right. The WWs must not have been too bad they were used on a ton of engines from different manufacturers. GM was still using them in 1972.

        I would see if I could beg, barrow or steel another carburetor. It would be wonderful if you and another Studebaker owner could swap carbs and see hat happens.

          I sure don't know any Studebaker guys around here, that's one reason its been hell putting this basket case car together. all I have to go by is this forum, books, other websites and pictures.

            Finally figured it out

            Well after almost a week, almost to the brink of suicide and no hair left I have finally FIGURED OUT THE PROBLEM! I just knew it would be something stupid. I installed the freaking main discharge tubes upside down. I had the diagonal slice facing upwards when it was supposed to be facing the wall of the venturi. Now Hows that for a royal screwup

              I was going to say also in a pinch a Rochester 2 jet (older side feed small base) will fit and run almost like is came from the factory.

                Have you checked the PCV valve? When they go bad they can alter the fuel to air ratio considerably.
