I don't know how familiar members of this forum are with John Twist. He is widely considered the MGB Guru in the US. Until about 2 years ago, he operated in MI as University Motors Ltd. He has produced many service/repair videos now posted on Youtube. I just came across an excerpt from his "University Motors Technical Book" addressing Zenith-Stromberg 175CD carbs. With only a couple of years familiarity with the Strombergs on my 6, I found it interesting and informative. While the Strombergs on a B differ from those on Triumphs (as he acknowledges) they also share 'lots'.

Well, yes and no. He's officially retired, but still does consultations, etc.

To the best of my knowledge he no longer has a financial interest in University Motors. I'm also pretty sure that the name of his shop has changed. I'd not classify him as retired. He travels around giving lecture/tech sessions. For example, he conducted a session October 2017 the day before the Hunt Country Classic annual British Car show, in Northern Virginia, and appeared around the showgrounds. He also traveled to England for appearances that Fall.
