Hose fittings previously sold for Stromberg carbs were usually 37 degree hydraulics fittings, but the Stromberg inlet has an 18 degree seat. As Stromberg owner Clive Prew explains, “We weren’t the first to realize this, but we could be the first to do something about it. The only way incorrect fittings work is if you tighten them to death and wreck both parts.”
As with every new Stromberg product, the SuperSeat fitting was developed using the company’s ‘just the same, but better than ever’ approach, so it echoes the traditional parts while improving them in every area.
Designed and manufactured exclusively by Stromberg, it boasts many small but important design features aimed to ensure superior style and performance:
•A beautiful smooth hose end (not barbed) just like vintage fittings from the 1950’s.
•A 9/16 AF hex size – bigger than the modern 1/2 inch fittings. It costs more to make, but looks better because it matches the OD of the hose and inlet fitting.
•The hex area and thread length are kept short for good looks – no ugly threads showing.
•Works with original needle & seat inlet fittings and the Genuine Stromberg S-jet.
•Works with 5/16 and 3/8 ID fuel hose.
•Best of all, it has the correct angle seat!
