Carb work/repair needed

Post  JBR-3 on November 18th 2013, 9:44 pm

In the baseplate (Holley), I broke off both the pivot studs that hold the accelerator pump arms.

They appear to have been Loctited in.

So, I need the old studs removed somehow, and new studs. Not even sure if these studs are
available as replacement pieces.

Which shops can do this kind of work ?
I have several Holleys and Carters that will eventually need some cleanup/prep.

Thanks folks !

Those studs are Loctited at the factory upon manufacture.
Heat it to over 300 degrees and it will melt the Loctite and come right out.

Carburetors done with a finish like new and other repairs are NOT inexpensive, (as it is a TIME thing), unless you do it yourself.

Thanks guys, I might be able to pull a rabbit out of my hat.
Hopefully not a dead rabbit.

Buy a Holley book and read it until you understand the basics .. A friend recommended this to me when I built my first hot rod..... You won't regret it... Good luck.

I'm in WA state.

I agree about getting another baseplate; there's a friend looking at it now, if it's FUBAR I'll just get another swap meet carb
for parts. But I hate to throw anything away if it looks fixable.

I would use almost any of the specialty carb shops, I haven't made any phone calls. I don't know which shops tend to prefer
only high dollar work (i.e. DaVinci). For example, I have an ordinary 700-DP that I'd like to get coated for purpose of
anti-corrosion - main body, bowls, blocks. Any of these guys do piecemeal jobs ? I get the feeling they want to sell me
a complete carb, maybe I'm off base though.

Some shops are for perfomance only I think, and some are geared to muscle car restoriation type work. Don't know how many will do both. There are all kinds of new coatings out that you could apply yourself, some of them used on firearms refinising, like Duracoat and Ceracoat, ect. you may want to consider, as well as some of the other industrial paints as well. I guess what I am saying, it depends what your after, and how much you want to spend. The poster that mentioned getting the carb book and learning how they work, made a very good suggestion. I did, years ago, with the Holleys, and it was worth every penny, in the long run.
