The basic deal is this. Assuming a complete, but tired, worn out WO, YF, or YS I charge a flat rate of $125.00 for the rebuild/restore service.
I will supply a Seal Tested® Carter Master Kit. This is the best kit I can buy and is $60.00.
I usually have to replace the Float Pin due to excessive wear. These are $5.00.
Throttle bushings are an additional repair and the service, including parts, is $40.00.
Throttle Shafts that are custom milled on site are $70.00.
Missing linkage? $5-$25.00, depending on the piece. Need an Air Horn, Bowl Cover? $15.00 each. A Main Body/Bowl is $35.00-$40.00.
Additional finishing (like paint) is time (My rate is $45.00 per hour) and materials. Cerakote™ is $55.00. You designate the finish.
You pay postage both ways ($28.70, roundtrip, depending upon insurance) USPS Medium Flat Rate Box).
I will disassemble the carb and document its problems in a forensic report. I will send this report and the estimate to you for approval. will then soak it in fresh carb cleaner, clean it thoroughly and then bead blast all pieces (unless you dictate otherwise). I can also polish the interior down to the venturi. Some folks prefer the old patina. I will do my best to save it if you desire. I will reassemble to factory spec with new parts from the kit. I will take four photographs of it and forward them to you for your approval prior to any gasoline going through it. I will test it thoroughly, and adjust it to optimum specs. The day I test it I will shoot and post a video of it operating and send you the invoice. Five-ten-business-day turn around from the time of delivery to me is usual unless additional services are requested or I am slammed.
OK. If you send me a worn out, yet complete WO, then for less than $300.00 you get it back in fresh condition, ready to install on your good motor. I accept All major Credit and Bank Debit cards. PayPal or USPS Money Order. Personal checks are OK, if you are willing to wait an additional 5 business days for check clearance.
WARRANTY: I give you a one year from date of installation warranty on my work. It is assumed, however, you will re-install the carb on a motor that is properly equipped and timed and tuned, with an adequate, clean and functioning air cleaner, a properly functioning heat riser, a clean and functioning PCV system and a clean, fresh and filtered fuel source.
If you have a problem we can’t solve with direct communication, I will pay postage both ways to return it to me and I will fix the problem at no charge to you.
