Not sure; I think the metal in those carbs, dissolves.  Some folks have cast new ones from different metal.

 

If you don't get an answer here, try asking it at the Hudson Open Forum, http://forum.hetclub.org/

 

Here is a past discussion on the AACA Forum, about Marvel V Carbs for the 1929's:

The gentleman who posted to the forum, was (at least back in 2012) remanufacturing part of the carb in aluminum, but it wasn't cheap1
