If you're searching for a leader in reliable, quality restoration of classic muscle car carburetors, then look no farther than the Holley Custom Shop.
This specialty service transforms tired, worn-out O.E.M. muscle carbs back to their original condition. And because this is a "custom" service, each order is personally followed through from start to finish by one of the factory technicians.
Not only are Holley carbs restored, but Rochesters, Motorcrafts and Carters, too. Engineering parts lists are uncompromisingly followed to the letter. In some remote cases where an O.E. part may no longer exist, an O.E. "equivalent" is used in its place.
You can be assured that your carburetor will remain in good hands. Even before any work begins, two or three close-up photos are taken of each carb from different angles so that it can be easily identified at any time during its stay at the Custom Shop. Many more precautions as well are taken to ensure your order stays together. Here are some other important reasons why the Custom Shop's restoration process stands out in customer satisfaction:
- Inspection of carbs for metal fatigue, slightly-stripped threads, hair-line cracks and worn-out throttle lever bushings.
- Cadmium Chromating of steel parts (clips, fasteners, linkages, etc.) for O.E. looks and corrosion protection.
- Black oxidizing of base plates on Rochester 2-BBL carbs.
- Chemical and vibratory cleaning of all carburetor castings.
- Testing of subassemblies-chokes, vacuum secondaries, float bowls, metering blocks-to verify performance before final assembly takes place.
- Replacement of gaskets, diaphragms, power valves and needle/seat assemblies.
- Flow-stand testing of all carburetors to confirm correct metering of air/fuel volumes.
NOTE: Prices are based on rebuildable cores (no damaged castings, stripped threads or missing parts.) Damaged or missing parts will be repaired or replaced and a charge will be added based on replacement value. Contact the Custom Shop for specific price information.
Dichromating restores stripped-down carburetor parts to their factory-original appearance. This is the exact gold/brown finish which appeared on many standard and performance models over the years.
Upon arrival at the Custom Shop, carburetor castings are immediately entered into a unique tracking system that all but eliminates the chance of a part becoming lost or being returned to the wrong customer. In fact, parts are also photographed to avoid any look-alike problems.
After going through a series of extensive cleanings, each casting sports a smooth, even dichromate coating that is indistinguishable from a new carb in every respect, including color.
Besides Holley models, the Custom Shop services Rochester, Carter and other brands as well, both two and four-barrel units. And all work performed by the Custom Shop is covered under a limited warranty and is guaranteed to live up to its expectations.
Like color powder coating, plating does not interfere with the original design of a part. In fact, it helps by providing extra protection against damage, thus extending the lifetime of the part. Whichever plating you choose, it's sure to be a hit.
