Stromberg 81

We all know about the Stromberg 81 carburetor, right? The 97’s smaller brother. Standard fit on the infamous ‘thrifty’ Ford V8-60 motor from around 1937 to 1940. Designed with a tiny 0.81 inch diameter venturi and 1.0625 inch throttle bores. Rated at various different cfm (cubic feet per minute of air) depending on who you talk to and whose equipment you test it on. Hard to find. And pricey too, nowadays. Yet more importantly, holder of almost legendary status among the 4-banger (and V8-60) cognoscenti.
