    Okay I give up - tried to rebuild a carb on this and it's leaking like a sieve. I used to be able to work on cars but I guess I can't any more, so eff it.

    1968 Chrysler New Yorker
    Pretty good (red) upholstery - hood lining has a big rip in it - carpet is munted (water damage)
    Odometer shows 33K miles
    Good 440 big block - ran pretty good before I effed the carb up (Edelbrock 1405)
    727 Trans
    Fairly straight body - some chrome trim damage but no major rust
    New gas tank, sender unit fitted
    Chassis looks straight and rust free
    Color is White with a red interior

    Has a (newish) after market SS exhaust system
    Popped a real brake cylinder so it comes with 2 new ones
    Also comes with brand new fuel pump and filter

    I have a title, but haven't put it in my name yet.

    Price is $5400, no offers and no swaps. Selling as is where is in central Texas.

    Pictures here Pics of 69-73 C bodies

    Any more info or pic's I'll be happy to send. It's too good of a car to let it get junked and I just can't do what I used to be able to do anymore.

    Also bought a car cover that will go with it
    and it sat in Hawaii for a while, I guess

    So instead of getting all bent out of shape over something sooo simple,,
    how about reading the vendor list on this site...
    For example, https://www.carburetorrestorationyoungstownoh.com/
    can do an absolutely fantastik job of re-doing that carb..
    You will be more than happy how well it works when you get it back....
    Plus he is very reasonable..
    And I am a cheap fux.. But I have sent to him three times now.... :D:D

    If it was easy everyone would have them. Go take the carb to good shop and have it rebuilt. Then enjoy.

    "So instead of getting all bent out of shape over something sooo simple,,"

    It might seem sooo simple to you, but I used to be able to do this crap blindfolded. I didn't even remember I knew how to braise until someone posted a comment about it. I used to gas weld and was a panel beater years ago. I have ptsd (non-military) and something trivial to you can be a major issue at times.
    I think there might have been something missing from the rebuild kit though, as I'm pretty sure gas shouldn't be spewing out of the top of the primer pump hole. I've asked for a quote from the link you helpfully posted, and am still thinking about replacing the entire carb. I have limited resources, so I'll have to see what comes up.
    for now, it's still for sale though
