Looking for a place to mount your fuel pressure gauge? Look no further. Stromberg has just finished these neat ‘fuel gauge banjos’ which allow you to check the fuel pressure right at the carb. They have all the benefits of our super-popular stainless steel single and double-end banjo fittings, but with an 1/8th NPT hole in the end of the bolt to accept your hot rod fuel pressure gauge.
Just to remind everyone, Stromberg banjo fittings use large diameter stainless steel material with a recess lip on each side to hide the gasket and move the bolt head closer to the banjo. The banjos are sized to fit both 5/16inch and 3/8inch hose, and plenty of fuel flow is guaranteed.
Knowing your fuel pressure is all the more important with Stromberg 97 carburetors, because you need to ensure 2.5 psi max. So if you already have Stromberg banjos (9082K or 9083K), and want to add a fuel pressure gauge to your line, you can buy just the replacement bolt. See them here:

If you want quality linkages (ie. with rod ends), multi-carb linkages are a real challenge as almost every intake differs in carburetor spacing, width and the offset between the two banks. How do we cover all those bases? With tailored solutions for those intakes still available new, like the Offy Pacesetters and the Edelbrock X1 ram, plus Trim-to-Fit options, which cover pretty much everything else out there. Unlike many a linkage, ours come pre-assembled with full instructions – including ‘Trimming to Fit’. Each kit comes in a cool zinc/stainless finish.
So here’s the deal: The direct (non-progressive) linkages are supplied as complete kits with our Snapback return springs. And the 6×2 progressive kits are modular, so you simply purchase two 3×2 progressive kits from our current range to suit your carb intake spacing, then add the new Back-bar Kit to link both carburetor banks together.
At the heart of the new systems is our unique low-line Back-Bar brackets that won’t over-whelm your shiny new 97s. Precision rolled in stainless steel and reamed for the Oilite self-lubricating bushings, they support the Back-bar shaft at BOTH ENDS for zero flex and positive operation. You simply cannot say that if your Back-bar is supported at one end only. Check them out here: Stromberg Carburetor Linkage

Stromberg Carburetor has launched the first of a new range of solid TwoStep fuel line kits for its Genuine Stromberg 97 carburetors. The new 2 x 2 and 3 x 2 stainless steel fuel line kits feature CNC-bent 1/4-inch stainless steel lines, which provide sufficient fuel flow, even on 3 x 2 manifolds.
The Ford nut compression fittings retain a traditional look and feel, and the stainless tee-pieces are shaped to match Stromberg linkage parts, said the company. These tee-pieces also feature leak-free ‘invisible’ furnace brazed joints.
The company has worked to improve any linkage clearance issues so that owners are able to have more flexibility especially in 3 x 2 progressive linkage applications, said the company.
The Stromberg TwoStep fuel line kits come with a full instruction manual.

Stromberg is proud to announce their participation in the recent unveiling of the recreation of Phil Remington’s 1941 lakester. Unveiled at a special party honoring Phil, who will be 90 this year, at the NHRA Museum in Pomona during LA Roadster weekend, the blue roadster was an exact recreation by Burton, Michigan’s Dan Webb. Webb hosted the party for 400 of Phil’s closest friends, including Dan Gurney, Stu Hilborn, and more.
Built in 1941 and raced at the lakes from 1946-1948, the roadster consistently ran over 130 MPH running a 21 stud Ford flathead fed by two Stromberg 97 carburetors. As Dan Webb wanted this to be a perfect recreation of the beautiful lakester, he needed to look no further than our reissue of the winning Stromberg 97.
Though the new Stromberg 97 looks exactly like it did almost 70 years ago when Phil chose them on his ground-breaking race car, internal improvements have been made to eliminate leaking, warping of the body and other problems that racers and hot rodders faced. Now, it’s the perfect choice in more ways than one. Congratulations to Phil Remington and Dan Webb for creating and recreating one of the greats from hot rodding’s past.

Check out the details of the NEW Genuine Stromberg Chrome 97 carburetors. These are real works of art, the finsh and details are top notch and are not matched anywhere. The chrome finish is the finest available and note how even the fuel inlet and choke plate are chrome plated.
More fine details: Here you can see how the idle adjusting screws are chrome plated and the fine detail chrome plating around the 97.

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!
