What do you guys use to sync your Stromberg Carbs?

Will something like this work?

or is there a cheaper option?

Yes, a stethoscope (a 'playing Doctor' toy will do) or 3 ft of hose.

Put one end to your ear and compare the sound of the hiss at the carb intakes.

Adjust the idle screws until they sound even.

Dale, the one you posted the link to is pretty much what is recommended by Burlen Fuel. I use the Gunson carb sync, they're like 12 bucks. Or they were.

So with this tool .. is there a different model for our cars?

Some of the links do not list Spitfires or GT6 as compatible.. I would think that since it is just testing vacuum from the carb as long as it fit over the hole it would be fine

I've been using the Uni-syn for many years on Strombergs and SU's. They work fine. Here's a review from an MG guy = http://mgaguru.com/mgtech/carbs/cb135.htm

+1 ......

easy to use...like mentioned...make sure you have the right sight gasket thingy. I ordered a different set fot hte HS4's. the ones that it came with would fit....but the other onese i ordered (i forgot the size), fit much better.

Am I the only one that uses this method?

Has anyone even tried it?
