Stromberg hose barb needle seat combination fittings for your 97’s-48’s and 81’s. The perfect clean look, these fitting are an exact replacement for the stock fuel inlet assembly. Precision made on a modern Swiss screw machine. Availble in 5/6″ or 3/8″ hose barb. Order from our catalog below (under stromberg parts) Part # S-9564-5/16″ or S-9564-3/8″. Note–available chrome plated also.
New Item– Higher pressure alcohol proof Stromberg 97-81-48 needle and seat assembly. Super precision machined fitting and solid steel needle make alcohol and fuel additive problems a thing of the past. The .098 orfice and steel needle apply more float pressure to a smaller area, so this fitting will hold more pressure than either a stock fitting or the ball (gross jet) style of inlet.
Not since the 50,s has anyone made a steel needle type fuel inlet for the stromberg. Why did they stop making them? Well, back then they had no way to filter the fuel and set the fuel pressure. At best your engine had an old sediment bowl with a screen, and the pressure was whatever the fuel pump put out. Flooding was common due to trash getting under the steel needle and pressure surges made things worse. The rubber tip on the needle (first Buna N and later Viton) let small pieces of trash embed in the tip and still let it seal. Well all was well and good until the gov. mandates for ethanol to be added to fuel. Now viton will no longer remain stable under some of these additives in most states. Alcohol additives tend to swell most natural and synthetic rubber compounds. If the tip swells up it will stick in the seat and shut off the fuel to the carb. Today we have clean and filtered gas and ways to regulate pressure so a steel needle works fine.The teflon sealing washers allow you to space the fitting for proper float contact. Order Part # S-9564 HP under the stromberg parts in our catalog.
Oversize Stromberg 97 needle and seat assembly. Now you will be able to use those old 97-48 and 81 bodies with stripped or weak threads. Our new needle and seat with oversize threads will let you make them like new again. Std. 97-48-81 stromberg has a 7/16-24 inlet thread. Our oversize fitting has a 1/2″-20 thread–1/16″ larger–that is 1/32″ on each side. Easy to install–Drill out the inlet 29/64″ and tap 1/2″-20. Screw in the new inlet with our special teflon sealing washer and your done. Order S-9564-OS from the Stromberg parts section of our catalog– $12.95 each. Note–I will soon have this availble in brass also. You can also ship us your stripped carb bodies and we can install SS helicoils to put them back to stock size.

New banjo fittings from Vintage Speed for your 97 or 94 carbs. They are precision made from 6061 T-6 alum. alloy on a Swiss screw machine with a 32 micron polished finish.

They can also be used on the side inlet rochester 2g carbs or any others with a 1/2″-20 female inlet thread. Banjo fittings swivel 360 degrees and let your lines set close to the carbs. The flange on the bolt slip fits into the banjo body keeping the fitting centered on the bolt. Large undercut on bolt and big hole will give excellant fuel flow. Teflon washers on both sides of the fitting seals the banjo. Available now for 5/16″ and 3/8″ id hose. The fittings come in singles and doubles. You need one single and one double for a 2×2-one single and two doubles for a 3×2 etc. The thread is 1/2″-20 on the banjo nut.

New finish offered on our carbs. With the new nostalia craze in full swing we have been swamped with customers wanting a durable natural finish on their carbs. We now offer you another choice. After cleaning and beading, carbs are washed in our new vibratory de-burring machine. Hi frequency vibration with ceramic stones and special de-burr soap solution gives the zinc a grey granite like finish. Carb is then rinsed and Chromated in clear chromate. Not a paint, this is an acid dip that protects the finish and forms a hard shell on the carb to protect the zinc. The carb as you can see is a pewter gray with a granite like texture that looks dynomite. This is now one of our stock finishes for those of you who like the natural color of zinc with the durability to stay looking good. We still offer our stock chromate (light tan) finish as well as any of our powder coated finishes and show chrome. The last three are optional finishes.

Eddie Edmunds —–Edmunds Custom
Date of birth 18 feb. 1916 —- Date of death Sept 1969—- Social Security # 554-14-8185
Eddie Edmunds made more performance equipment for more makes of cars than Weiand-Edelbrock-Offy-and Fenton combined. Eddie was a true Automotive enginneer supreme. Eddie was a native of Portland Oregon before moving to L.A. in search of a foundry to cast his alum parts. A lot of the early speed part dealers started in Portland area. Bud Meyers -Eddie Meyers son, told me a that Edmunds came to there shop in the early days and told them they should start casting the Meyers heads and intakes and you know the rest of that legend. Edmunds was the only performance parts maker approved by GM to be dealer installed on there cars. Each and every part Edmunds sold came show polished or so the catalogs say. The Edmunds logo can be found in many variations-Edmunds–Edmunds custom– (Custom was sometimes spelled Kustom) Edmunds Racing–and Eddie Edmunds to name a few. Since his name was hand carved into the wood patterns by many differant pattern makers scattered all over the USA, finding any two alike is hard. I have never seen an Edmunds part without the hand carved script. Even the early block letters looked hand carved. We will be reproducing some of the more popular Edmunds intakes and other parts soon. Edmunds Custom was in business from–about 1934 (maybe earlier) thru about 1959 or ’60 when it was sold to Fenton . Eddie was born the 18th of Feb. 1916 and died Sept 1969 according to Roy Pagnini who wrote a recent story on Edmunds. Fenton dropped Edmunds from there line after a couple of years as the demand for inline six cyl. -carb setups and alum heads went away. Eddie loved dual intakes as a major part of his line consisted of dual intakes and finned alum heads. He did also make triples for a lot of the early V-8’s. Fenton made many of Edmunds products with the Fenton logo when they first bought the company. If you notice in our catalog we sell Y block Ford valve covers made by Edmunds and Fenton –same pattern differant logos, but both correct. These were made from original patterns. The early Fenton flathead intake was made in the Edmunds pattern with Fenton logo up front. I was told by Els Lonns (of EELCO fame) that he also thought Eddie died in 1969. I do know that we find no other info or mention of Eddie after 1959 and that Almquist and JC whitney catalogs were selling off all remaining discontinued Edmunds heads and intakes in 1960. Els Lonns (of EELCO) once told me that Eddie liked the Booze and women–(sounds like an alright guy to me). I also heard that his death was alcohol related. I’m not sure if that meant that he had liver disease or got hit by a beer truck. Eddie made parts before the war as some of his early intakes were down right crude looking. One of our new shirts will sport the neat Edmunds logo below, showing the NASH engine he produced in the early 50’s. Did you know he made finned alum exhaust manifold covers for the Caddy and Olds engines??—Anybody ever seen an original??
One of his very early parts was a water heated carb adapter that fit between the intake and the carb. These show up only on the crude pre war intakes. We will be reproducing this part soon. I have a 1952 catalog that states he was in business for over 25 years. That would mean as early as the mid 20,s he could have been involved in the auto profession, must have started at 10 years old.. The pictures I have of Eddie in the early 50’s, he looks about 40 or 45 years old. 1916 to 1969 would have made him 53, still a young man. If he did die that young ,he sure made a ton of stuff in the few years he had. I have a personal collection of Edmunds parts—I buy all Edmunds intakes –heads–valve covers, paperwork, catalogs or other interesting stuff. Collecting Edmunds Speed parts is a real task as you never seem to find them all. Cash to you or trade for any of our items. Email me—thanks. I know Edmunds built a new building at 2042 Stoner ave in `west L.A. -Ca. in 1952–Do any of you L.A. guys know if it is still there? Note—I would like to hear from anyone collecting edmunds parts or If you have any info on the company.
