My 1976 230's Stromberg 175 CD has been an utter nightmare. I have rebuilt it once, had it adjusted several times, and still, it does not run properly. (Smoke on start up, hot or cold)
My mechanic suggested that instead of spending more money on this troublesome carb, try and get a new or used Weber carb to replace it.
Just wondering if any of you have had a similar experience and could shed some light on this subject.
