Stromberg 150CD - starter assembly


Recommended Posts

The term comes from it being an enrichment device rather than a strangler which is a choke


they all make for a rich cold starting mixture ,

a choke restricts the air

a start valve adds more fuel

the result is the same


well something like that

Each manufacturer devised a different play on a solution

dropped jets, obstructed intake, choked flap and automacity flap, enrichment valve, either pulled by manual cable or sprial bimetal heat reactive spring some heated by water some electric.
