Stromberg carburetor diaphragm torn

I was having trouble keep my car running after installing the new fuel pump, so I disassembled the carburetor and found the governor diaphragm was torn. What does this diaphragm do? Any pot holes I need to look out for when I install the new one? I have the carburetor out of the car.

Strombergs were used on a lot of American cars of the era, so you should be able to find parts and manuals on line.

Remember: It's not just a car. It's an Adventure.
