New Vintage Carbs
Inspired by the growing popularity of old-school hot rods, Demon Carburetion has joined this niche market with the introduction of the Demon 98 carburetor. This retro two-barrel high-performance carburetor, designed to fit '30s-style three-bolt intake manifolds, can be fitted singly or in multiples, and it is a replacement for the Stromberg 97. Rated at around 205 cfm (per unit), the 98 is designed to accept period-style air cleaners or air horns. It also employs many commonly available service parts, facilitates a choke, and operates at 6 to 7 psi of fuel pressure. The Demon 98 is available in a standard gold retro look, with an optional chrome finish available at a later date.
