One of the biggest challenges for the classic car owner is finding high quality replacement parts. This is especially true when it comes to buying a replacement carburetor, and today it has become harder than ever to find a quality carburetor at a decent price.

In the past, high-quality, rebuilt or remanufactured carburetors were available over the counter at all of the major parts supply stores across the United States. One could count on the fact that these carburetors had been completely disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and then rebuilt by skilled workers using quality replacement parts. It was also safe to assume that any core carburetor with a disqualifying fault was eliminated from the remanufacturing process and would therefore, never be sold to the general public again.

As manufacturing has been shifted overseas and pressures have been placed on companies for bigger and greater earnings, it has become apparent that many of the quality control measures that once were a cornerstone for many companies have been either discarded or reduced.

As the webmaster for an antique car club that has been in existence since the mid 1980s, I have corresponded with countless members who have purchased remanufactured carburetors in the last ten years. Some of the recent quality issues that our club members have encountered are:

  • Sandblasting media being left in the carburetor bowl. Among othеr things, thіѕ cаn cauѕe flоats, јеtѕ and aссеlеrator рumрѕ tо ѕtісk оr outright fail.</lі>
    • Incorrect rebuild parts used in the remanufacturing process. One manifeѕtatiоn of thiѕ problеm iѕ саrburetor malаdіes that аrе verу hаrd tо dіagnosе becauѕe inсоrreсt partѕ are оftеn vеry ѕimіlar tо сorreсt pаrtѕ.</lі>
      • Warped or otherwise faulty cores consistently being used. Warрed mounting bаѕеs tyрiсаllу саuѕe vaсuum lеаkѕ whіch lead tо роor idling, bаd gаѕ mileаge аnd оther рroblеmѕ.

Any of the abovementioned issues can create a carburetor that causes serious issues when installed and in many cases, ALL of these problems have been present in remanufactured carburetors purchased from reputable parts houses and it has been common for our club members to go through several carbs before getting one that seems to be relatively usable.

Unfortunately, the best cure for the situation has been to abandon the remanufactured carburetors altogether and stick with rebuilding an OEM carburetor and carburetor rebuilding has become a necessary skill for the classic car enthusiast over the last decade.

Once upon a time, not so very long ago, it was possible to walk into a major parts house and buy a remanufactured carburetor, but those days seem to vanished along with the manufacturing jobs responsible for the quality carbs. The car collector of today has been forced to become more savy about his/her purchases and in many cases, he has had to develop skills once reserved for specialists.
