The skinny: I bought a used thermoquad that is in pretty good shape but hasn't been used in a long time. I took to a local carb re-builder for a rebuild and he told me that it wouldn't be worth a rebuild due to the body of the carb (non-metal) being prone to failing and that it is no longer available to purchase. "I can rebuild it for you, but there's no telling how long that body will last. Could be a week. could be a year. At that point you'd be out the rebuild and have to get something different any. Spend a little more on a different carb and be ahead of the game in the long run." Did a quick search here and didn't see a discussion on this. I'm curious how accurate this is cause I kinda got the feeling he told me that b/c he didn't want to do. The guy is well known in the area and many shops use him and stand by his work. thoughts?
