Default Re: Carb expert needed

Typically it’s not a problem unless the carb is severely rusted and then that wouldn’t be a favorable core anyway. I’ve not had one that I’ve ever had to resurface the seat because it was that poor. Just my experience. If I have a carb bottom that bad I’d use another one.
I haven’t done it but it may be possible to drill and tap for a replaceable seat . You would have to do some carefull drill work and use a special seat cutting tool to get a good flat tight seat.
Easier to use another carb bottom.
