Services Pricing

There will be a small price increase effective as of 01-01-15

Some basic labor & parts prices are listed below. Please note that these are only general guidelines and actual costs may vary depending on the particular make & model of carburetor and whether or not additional parts and/or services are required. When estimating your cost, take into consideration the basic labor rate, the cost of parts (kit, float, pull-off, etc.) and the cost of bushing the base. This will give you a basic approximation of your costs:

*NOTE* There will be an additional cost to update early systems to mechanical linkage if they haven't already been converted.

Rochester Quadrajet carbs:
Rebuilds start at $175.00
Restorations start at $325.00

Basic parts prices:

-Kits: Prices vary from $29.95+ depending on application

Labor:

Carter AFB/AVS carburetors:
Rebuilds start at $175.00
Restorations start at $300.00

Basic parts prices:

-Kits: Prices vary from $29.95+ depending on application

Labor:

Carter WCFB carburetors and Rochester 4CG carburetors:
Rebuilds start at $200.00
Restorations start at $400.00

Basic parts prices:

-Kits: Prices vary from $39.95+ depending on application

-Floats: Note that new floats have not been available for these carburetors for many years. As such, we are forced to re-use your original floats, or if they are no longer serviceable, reconditioned original components must be used. The cost of these components varies depending on the application, but typical costs can be $50.00+ each and are subject to availability. As such, there is no warranty on any float-related issues on these carburetors.

Additional cost items:

Extremely dirty carburetors, or carburetors that have been spray painted will incur a minimum additional cleaning charge of $35.00. Carbs that have been spray painted with epoxy paint will incur a minimum additional cleaning charge of $60.00

Thread repairs:

-Install thread repair insert for typical 6-32/8-32/10-24 etc. fasteners: $10.00 each incl. insert

-Install thread repair insert for 1/4”-20 and larger: $12.50 each including insert

-Needle & seat thread repair on Holley float bowls with externally adjustable floats: $35.00 each incl. insert

-Needle & seat thread repair on Rochester Quadrajet: $45.00 incl. insert

-Install deep thread fuel inlet fitting on Rochester Quadrajet: $45.00 including the cost of the fitting

-Install thread repair insert for 7/8”-20 fuel inlet: $45.00 each including the cost of the insert, fittings are extra.

-We do not offer thread repairs for 1”-20 threaded fittings

Note: I do not care to install thread repair inserts on Quadrajet fuel inlet fittings as they have a nasty habit of leaking as a result of losing excessive gasket sealing material when the casting is drilled & tapped for the insert. I can install these inserts, but only as a "last resort", and there is no warranty on this repair.

De-warping Rochester Quadrajet carburetors:
While some amount of warp is to be expected on these carburetors simply due to their design, some carburetors are far more damaged than others. When warpage is minimal, usually no corrective steps are necessary, but in severe cases, the top casting & main body will require straightening to ensure correct carburetor function. Depending on the severity of the warp, repair costs will start at $50.00 (for both castings) and go from there. Please note that it is nearly impossible to resolve 100% of the warp, so some slight warp may remain after repairs, but it will be within acceptable limits to ensure proper carburetor function. To avoid further damage upon reinstallation, please avoid over-tightening your carburetor mounting fasteners. The recommended torque value for a typical 5/16" carb mounting fastener is 60-80 inch/lbs, or roughly 5-6 ft.lbs.

Repairing cracked Holley throttle bodies ("base plates"):
For years, people have been welding these baseplates to get them back into service. However, this repair isn't without its drawbacks. While it usually serves well from a functional standpoint, it often sorely lacks in regards to aesthetics. The main culprit here is the fact that the aluminum used to cast these bases was never of very high quality, and due to the impurities in the metal, it makes them very difficult to weld without leaving behind a giant blob of filler, or even some potentially troublesome porosity issues. As a result, after much trial & error, I have developed a proprietary method of repairing cracked Holley baseplates which does not involve welding. The repair has been tested far beyond normal stresses and has yet to fail in service. Please note that there will be a visible parting line where the flaw was present, but this can easily be remedied with a little silver epoxy paint on a modelers paint brush.

Note that I WILL NOT perform this repair w/o the customers prior knowledge and formal approval, preferably via email. Also note that depending on where the baseplate is damaged, there are some bases I will not be able to repair; I can not repair anything that has been cracked through a throttle bore, and I can not repair anything that is missing a broken section. The typical cost to repair a cracked base starts at $75.00 and goes from there, depending on the amount of time it takes to set up the repairs.
