looking for a carburettor for a 1980 California-spec MGB

Post by rickt » Wed Aug 29, 2012 5:00 pm

hi everyone!!!

my carburetor decided to become unfixably uncooperative, and despite i and my mechanics many attempts to resurrect, she is not having it.

and so, i am on the hunt for a (new or used) single Stromberg for a 1980 California-spec MGB.

they seem to be incredibly hard to find.

can anyone recommend a vendor? ideally they would be local to Socal, but i am open to suggestions!!!!! the usual places that i know of just don't seem to sell them at all.

many thanks in advance for your suggestions!!!

best,
Rick.

Try Bill Turley phone number 1-805-644-4565. He is located in Ventura, CA. and is very good at tuning and fixing carbs of all types and might even have or know where to acquire a replacement.

Hope this helps.
