The carb is a Zenith-Stromberg from (I beleive) a 1974 Spit. I purchased
it in dire need of a rebuild and general all-around cleaning-up from
another member of this list, and rebuilt it myself. After getting it
apart, it turned out to be in much better condition than it appeared
from the outside, so I just replaced all the seals and gaskets, the needle
valve, and the metering needle, and scrubbed the rest of it clean.
If you can find a decent pair of carbs in a salvage yard, you might be
able to do the same. Or maybe someone on the list has a pair for sale.
Anyone? Victoria British or TRF may have rebuilt units, too, but I would
expect to pay handsomely for them.
