If you will indicate if it is a 2 barrel or 4 barrel it might widen your choices of rebuilders.

Yes, I can do both the Holley 4000 4 barrel carb and the Holley 2 barrel carb.

Hope you don't need to rebuild as often as I do. I'm displeased with gasket sets and power valves available. These things suck! Easy to rebuild though.

I have used Sal for carbs, and I have used Charlie for fuel pumps. I can say that both have done an excellent job. The carbs that Sal did for me were the 4000 series Holley 4bbl carbs., I am sure he can do just as well on a 2bbl.
