I don't but you can buy a rebuild kit and do it yourself. Save a ton of money if you're slightly mechanically inclined.

Its in my spares so I have not fitted it but I was very happy with what had been done as far as I can tell ;)

Did the chap give you a price to do said refurb?
Want mine done so I know its Bob on when I nail it back onto mine.
The DIY kits seem very reasonable but it sounds like he'll send it back looking pretty new :cheers:

Hi have you had the carb reconditioned yet? As it is easy to do yourself. I did mine about 3 years ago and the cars ran spot on ever since. The auto choke works perfectly still which it didn't before. The genuine Weber service kit for the 32/36 dgav carb was £20 last time I got one and it comes with new seals and gaskets etc. Or I could recondition your carb for you for some beer money. :)

The rebuild itself is a piece of piss it's more the acid dip etc that I was interested in so that it looks nice and pretty...

The specific refurbishment prices for each carb and anything that would incur extra costs are on this page:

Keeps coming about acid dip etc and I keep on thinking about buying a ultrasonic cleaning machine and doing a carriage clock as the brass and parts are cleaned . But after you have used this method you must lacquer the parts . So I wonder if you would do the same with a carb .
If anybody has a laser 2.0 with autocoke carb give us a shout . I bet it will be Martin as I have already ask him to do a small job for me . Must be standard and not broken please .

Yes Andrew I might give in this year and get one as it might save some time .

Note to self
How many projects have you got going ? :banghead:
