Carb Rebuilder?

I am looking for a good and relatively inexpensive carb rebuild shop to send my holley 2300 to. Does anybody know a good place to send a carb to get rebuilt?

You can try here, Carburetor, Carburetors, Carbs, Carb Parts. Pony Carburetors - Your Ford Carburetor Restoration and Part Sales Specialist not sure how "inexpensive" it will be.

A local mechanic may be a better bet on a budget. Plus they can adjust it on the vehicle.

Those are pretty simple to rebuild, not a lot of parts if I recall.

I have already put a kit in the carb only to figure out that the throttle shaft is very worn and the accelerator pump screws are partially stripped. I don't know how to re bush throttle shafts and I think a shop could do a better job of re tapping the threads for the accelerator pump screws. So hopefully I can find a shop that will rebuild the carb for a good price. Thanks for the recommendation!

LMC Truck has remanufactured carbs for 250.00 with a 45.00 core. It sounds like a pretty good deal. I just don't know how extensively these carburetors have been rebuilt.

I just called LMC and the representative wouldn't give me any information about who or how they rebuild their carburetors. Looks like I won't be going to LMC for a carb.
