Then and Now Automotive
Weymouth, Mass

They sell kits with all new mfg components so the new fuels don't eat them.

I received my kit the other day from Then and Now Automotive. Very nice people to work with. The Stromberg kits are not inexpensive compared to kits for other carburetors (glad the half track only has one – my '41 Buick had 2 of them!). The kit has plenty of parts for various versions of the AAV Stromberg. USA-made, no less! Carburetor is all happy again and as soon as I get the fuel pump squared away, will run some gas through it. Thanks again Steve.

Which Then And Now Automotive carb repairkit have you used? I sent them inquiry while ago, and they have a kit for fuelpump (kit number FPA70), but they couldn't find one for Stromberg carb. The partnumbers that i gave them should be right, they're from manual.

Thanks.

Mikko.

The kit they sent me was their P/N MIS 2001 for Stromberg AAV-2. Hope this helps.

Mikko - if you also need a fuel pump kit, Kevin Lockwood/col.halftrack has kits at a good price made with modern materials for current gas.

Then and now also has a rebuilding service. That is what I did. Here is a link to my post. http://halftrackinfo.com/index.php?topic=1401.0 I'm very pleased with their work.

Just had it confirmed by Daytona Parts, they supply the service kits to 'Then and Now', that the correct kit number is as Jon stated2001.
