FOR SALE: Flathead Intake Package — Tattersfield, Thickstun and Stromberg 97’s

by Dave on May 7, 2015

Intake_1I know a handful of you old guys are into traditional flathead motivation so here’s a bit of real-deal jewelry that may be of interest. This is a complete intake/carb/air cleaner package that came off Gary’s Deuce roadster. Tattersfield + Thickstun + Stromberg. These are all original hard-to-find pieces, not re-pops, and they’re in excellent condition. Here are the details:

INTAKE:  Original Tattersfield hi-rise 2×2. “Electric & Carburetion Engineering Co. Los Angeles” and serial number are visible in casting. With the exception of one small chip near the generator mount (see photo) intake is in excellent condition and fully polished.


CARBS: Pair of small logo 97’s: Old chrome bodies still look great. Carbs have been totally rebuilt including new discharge tubes and rebushing of one of the throttle shafts. We did the machine work here in our shop and used all new English Stromberg parts. #47 main jets, intake ran strong on a 284 inch flathead.


AIR CLEANER: Original Thickstun, in excellent condition. Modern filter material has been installed inside without modifying the original air cleaner.


EXTRAS: Throttle linkage plus a one-off fuel block with integral fuel pressure gauge.
