The basis of the carburetor is the Stromberg 175CD as produced in the United Kingdom (England / Great Britain).
This version here, the 175 CDTU, was produced in Germany for Volvo and Mercedes-Benz and differs from the British versions.
The, scarcely available, literature remains very vague and also the carburettors themselves do not always indicate the exact type.
The German versions often carry the Pierburg or Deutsche Vergaser GMBH names on the top cover and in some cases also "Made in Germany".
However... also of this variety there are at least two versions to be found...
The set that we offer here is suitable for the versions with the round top cover with gasket without eyelets.
So, as indicated in the drawing below:
Another major difference can be found in the needle valves as illustrated below:
Basically (!) PM8011 is the needle valve as used in the German versions. This is the valve with the FINE thread, as visible in the photo.
If your carburetor is equipped with needle valve PM8016, with COARSE thread, then we would like to refer your to our department for the regular Stromberg 175CD rebuild kits that you will find HERE.
This is a Carburetor City carburetor rebuild kit of excellent Italian manufacture.
