Stromberg Adapter Blocks Balance Pipe & Flanges

PostPost by: jaman » Thu Sep 19, 2019 4:46 am

I have a S4 Fed that has a rebuilt engine to Sprint specs. Some time in it's past the engine was rebuilt and the Adapter blocks etc were not reinstalled.

Does anyone know where I can get replacement parts. European set-up preferred.

Thanks in advance for your help.

If you can’t get the Euro balance tube setup (of which there are two variants: you want the one with the high balance tube), I do have the proper modified blocked Federal intermediate adapter available.

My car came with a manifold made by Joji Tokumoto in CA (see here for pricing/ordering info). It's well made, but no idea how the price compares to an original non-Federal manifold.

Hi 1owner69Elan.

Thanks for your response. YES I would be interested. Still searching for the UK/ Euro version so If I can't find one I will definitely get in touch.

How much are you asking for it?

If you have another offer please let me know before you sell it.

I've heard anecdotal claims that the blocked Federal version is a little better because the pathway through the balance channel is smoother, what with not having to go through 90-degree bends into and out of the tube. Probably doesn't really make any noticeable difference to the seat of one's trousers though.

As to that; what exactly is wrong with the crossover pipes? They fullly vaporize the mixture and insure even distribution to each cylinder but are progressivly bypassed as the throttle is opened. Where's the problem?
