    that's the shop, that "restored" my rare 61 318 power pack AFB about a year ago. It was ROUGH, stuck throttles and beat to death. It came back to me as new.....
    Happy to hear your stepping up to save the business..

    No Sir, none at this time. As I said he had been hobbled up pretty good for the last couple years, so cleaning wasn't a big priority. I'm chipping away at it between jobs, but it will take some time.

    Wow. Guess I know where I'm sending my AFB.
    I do love that every time I read the title to this post my eyes stop at "Just Bought a Carburetor ..." Then I slowly proceed to "Shop".

    Do you sell parts too? I'm not sure if I need a total rebuild. My big block thermoquad seems to start easy and idle nice when warm. But it has a stumble and occasionally dies while in gear from a dead stop during "tip in".

    I don't really like to sell my parts. Sounds lean as usual. Check your pump shot, make sure you are getting a nice stream.

    @Dana

    Do you have a stash of cores for rebuild in a case that a customer does not have the desired carburetor to be sent for rebuilding?
