ARC Performance present these all new Ford sidevalve ‘97’ two barrel carburettors with a three bolt pattern. These are a new style, 21st century reproduction of the classic Stromberg 97. New tooling produces crisp, flawless castings and the aluminium base assembly allows for cooler fuel temperatures and better fuel efficiency. The choke assembly, accelerator pump and jets have all been faithfully retained and accept standard Stromberg parts. Designed with the Stromberg’s 0.97” venturi diameter, the troublesome needle and seat has been replaced by a Grose-style fuel inlet valve to better cope with higher fuel pressures and improved high speed running. It won’t stick or dribble like the old Viton-tipped needle and seat setups and the Grose-style jet valve won’t corrode in modern fuel, something the original needle and seat units can’t do. Comes with a No. 65 power valve and 0.045” main jets, identical to the stock 97, and extended brass throttle shaft to simplify multi-carb linkage. They’re perfect for use with one of ARC Performance’s dual carb intake manifolds for Ford Flatheads.
