Re: Teapot Carb rebuild

Hi Sal, you've provided info to me in the past, and I appreciate it. So you rebuild carbs? This is a 2 barrel off a Merc 1953 Flatty. What's the charge? And are they bench tested before their return?

Can anyone recommend someone that rebuilds teapot carbs to spec? Also, can you provide some listing for a replacement non teapot carb? Thank you!
