I would have gone that route if I could have, unfortunately the last carb. shop in my area closed down last year. So I thought rather than driving 75 miles to the next nearest place that I don't know the reputation of I'd go this other route. I can do the actual overhaul myself but I've never tried replacing the bushings before, maybe I'll try it next time but probably not as National Carbs did well for me.

I have never had much luck with parts store rebuilds and find that my own job is usually a better one. I use to take my carburetors to a special carb. shop in the area if there work needed to be done and that was beyond what I could do at home but the old guy that ran the place retired and closed the business, so that is no longer an option. Well recently I decided to rebuild the carburetor on the motorhome (Dodge 360 Holley) and found that the throttle shaft bushings were shot. Not wanting to buy a typical parts store reman unit I looked to the internet and after some looking around decided to give National Carburetors a try http://nationalcarburetors.com/, I figured it wouldn't be any worse than a parts store carb and it was cheaper, if it was a total bomb I could just use there base plate on my carb. Well guess what, it was a top notch carburetor. I feel like I couldn't have done it better myself, and that is saying a lot because I like my rigs to run near perfect. Just had to set the idle mixture, tweak the choke and go. I'd highly recommend there guys based on this experience. Oh, I'll be taking the motorhome on a 400 mile round trip this coming weekend (towing a trailer loaded with Halloween stuff of course)to the Olympic peninsula so that will be the real test. Anyhow, I just thought I would pass on a good experience.
