CD175 Zenith Stromberg Carburetor set for Jensen Healey,
Remanufactured (with core exchange)
The twin Stromberg CD175’s are fine carburetors, but they are highly
precise instruments that run exacting tolerances. Unfortunately, worn
Stromberg carbs aren’t easy to rebuild properly and adjust correctly.
Simple gasket replacements on high mileage units will not suffice and worn
carburetors can create dangerous conditions in the engine. For example,
worn out needles and jets can cause too rich mixture or flooding condition,
resulting in fouled plugs and premature wear on rings and bearings.
Worn throttle shafts allow vacuum leaks which can cause a lean gas
mixture and increased combustion temperatures resulting in premature
valve failure. Sadly, a common Jensen Healey problem that can be avoided.
The effects of age and wear on the Strombergs will eventually make your
idle almost impossible to maintain- even so called “overhauled”
Strombergs, the way most people do them, will still suffer from a laundry
list of problems without a complete restoration.
Our remanufactured Strombergs are restored to an incredibly high
standard, and because of the personal attention they receive, they will
function as well as new units.
We use only high quality gaskets, seals, jets, and float valves. New throttle
shafts and throttle plates are fitted as needed. Worn throttle shaft bores
are repaired using modern Teflon coated bushings. Decel by-pass kits are
installed. New, original specification fuel needles for the Jensen Healey are
installed. Fixed fuel jets are measured and gauged for serviceability and
are replaced as needed. All components are completely disassembled and all
parts glass bead blasted. Accurate preliminary adjustments to factory specs
are made allowing easy installation and starting.
Please don’t confuse our restored Strombergs with a set of carbs that have
been slapped together by some casual workers in one of those sweatshop
carburetor places that rebuild anything and everything.
I’ve seen people pay hundreds of dollars for junk work and junk parts and
others that have had their carbs ruined by inexperienced mechanics. If
you’ve had enough with the Carburetor Clowns and are ready for the best,
this is it.
Price includes two high quality rebuilt Stromberg carburetors,
complete front and rear, as pictured. Fits all years of stock, Federal model
Jensen Healey and Jensen GT. Others Strombergs rebuild as requested for
similair costs, but you'll need to send the carbs in to be rebuilt.
All units are rebuild to a stunning, show-quality standard. All the bodies
are meticuiously media blasted/polished to a beautiful satin shine and all screws
and metal tubes get new, cadmium plating, bench tested, tuned and balanced
ready for final installation and balancing on your car ($649).
Back plates also available (with core exchange) for an additional $120.00 -
plates are media blasted/polished to a beautiful satin shine and all bolts
and nuts and washers are removed, cadmium plated and reassembled.
Stromberg Intake Manifold also available (with core exchange) for an additional
$250.00 - complete manifold is media blasted/polished to a beautiful satin
shine to complement the carburetors.
Please Note: we are out of cores right now, we can only rebuild the
Stromberg carb set that you ship to us.
We currently have a 3-4 week wait right now.
