My local shop, that employs mechanics that have their own antique project cars, has advised me that the carb on my '51 88 probably needs a rebuild. I saw that Fusick has that service, but they do not seem to cover my carb model Carter WGD (851). Also, I noticed a rebuild is not too cheap. (I know, this hobby is akin to standing under a cold shower tearing up $100 bills but we all love it anyway) I have found the Carburetor Shop online and hope to hear from them whether they have a repair kit for the Carter. If they don't are there other suppliers that might be able to help? What advice can people with more experience in this area (probably about 98% of the members) give me? Is this a difficult task, if I start what are the gotchas to avoid. Thanks in advance Stefan
