    Bendix Stromberg BXV-2 Carby

    Does anyone have the FB/EK HOLDENSTROMBERG CARRBURETTION ENTHUSIASTS GUIDE that they could send me please ? Ahead of putting a kit through my carby ,I thought it may be a good idea to brush up on a few things. The SCRIBD website wants my credit card details + I have to upload a document in exchange ?! Happy to pay - just not with my credit card + I have nothing to upload!
    cheers,

    Dark, what do you need to know, anything specific?
    I have a couple of Holden workshop manuals that have Stromberg carb sections in them, however they for later vehicles than the EK. I can scan the carby sections and send them to you if you wish.


    Cheers, Mick.

    Thanks Mick - nothing specific just a general heads up - in the SCRIBD doc there was a section taking you through putting a kit through it. Since I've not done it before , I thought it might be useful to have it to one side. I'm not a great fan of reading off the screen - I like to have a paper version. I was happy to buy the thing as a one off but it appears you have to subscribe etc and I don't want to do that. Hold off on the scanning - I'll have another think.
    cheers,

    Have you purchased the kit.
    The kits I have got in the past have a mud map with them.
    Also check the top of the carby for warping with a straight edge.
    If it is warped clean it up on a sheet of wet n dry on a piece of glass.




    Cheers, Mick.

    Yep got the kit and there's a very basic diagram with it which I'll have to scan in and enlarge as I can't read half of it. When you say the top of the carby - as far as I can see the carby splits up into 4 parts. Which part has the top that might be warped? Or - should you check all the mating surfaces?
    Cheers,

    Does the carby you have look like this?
    If so it is the top section held on by six screws.
    The air cleaner attaches to it and it is the top of the float chamber.


    Cheers, Mick.

    G'day Dark,

    I just found this site about tuning the Stromberg. It might be of some interest.

    Kind Regards

    Thanks Lionel - just having that diagram with the numbered description is an improvement on what I had before.

    Well Look at that

    G'day All.

    I went online for a YouTube visit and typed in Holden Stromberg Carb. My search led me to this site Hj Hz Holden Torana GMH GMC Carby Carburetor Replacement. The I saw another part that my Holden engine did not come with - splash plate to direct fuel leaks from the carburettor away from the hot manifolds. Damn

    Looks Like I am off to the local sheet metal supplier and have to break out some tools.

    The video also showed where some of the pipes went - I am obviously missing that corrugated wide diameter pipe that fits off the bottom of the air cleaner. Stuffed if I know where it then connects up to.

    I bought a proper carbon canister and the video shows where it connects to - another bonus.

    There is an early Holden car show here in Bundaberg this Saturday - I will be keeping a sharp look out - who knows I might find the missing part there. I will get this engine sorted out with all of its component parts in their right place one day!

    How come the Workshop manuals show sod all of fully complete motors? They always seem to strip parts off before taking the photograph to get a more clear shot. For example, remove the air cleaner and all the pipes connected to it before showing the photograph of how you take the carburettor off. A photograph of what it looks like when the bonnet is first lifted and any hands touch anything would be damn handy!

    Kind Regards
    Lionel
