Saw that last night on Fox News, but did a Triumph have Strombergs? I thought they were side-draft SUs.

Now half a dozen Strombergs on a log manifold on a flathead Ford ...

And No, Amiles, that would be on the motorcycles though /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif.

Taz Both my 71 and 72 Spitfires had the side draft Strombergs, and were pain in the A$$ to keep working right.

And my 49 Merc had Strombergs on top of it,, 3 as a matter of fact on top of an Offenhauser manifold. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/codger.gif

I always thought that on the Triumphs, the single carbs were the Zenith Strombergs, and the duals were the older SUs. I had an 80 MGB, with a single ZS.

My 70 E-type has twin Zenith Strombergs, so I can relate. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
