Default Marvel Carburetors

So, I have 5 Marvel carburetors in my collection of Model A stuff. I am wondering if anybody knows where I can send them out to be rebuilt? Well, two of them anyway. Or does anyone know where I can get rebuild kit(s)?

Yes, call David at Renner's Corner https://rennerscorner.com/carburetor.html. David is a good guy and will fix you up with what you need. He has rebuild kits and parts. He also has some used parts that are not listed so if you don't see it, ask. I just got a good used throttle shaft to replace my worn one.

Also check the slide show https://rennerscorner.com/slide-show--info.html for info on MarVel Schebler/Allstate/Johnson carburetors.

Renners no longer rebuilds carbs. But they still sell parts for them.

Jim Bullock x4 - bought a rebuilt from him this year, very satisfied, If rebuilt by him they are tested/use flow tested jets, runs a ton better then the 2 rebuilt zeniths I also have. Since they are tested they have the Gas line adapter fitting on them. Simply swap in , form your gas line for the Marvel - maybe adjust the idle jet where you want. He sends instructions with the carb. Quick turnaround. My truck will now idle at 420 rpm which it previously would only idle smoothly down to 500 rpm, never stalls, seems to run better/smoother.
