Default carburetor repair / rebuild

Looking for a reliable shop or person to rebuild a carb (q-jet )for me !
I'd do it myself but it has been a long time since I did one and the part I have needs to be boiled out / cleaned !
Would prefer somewhere down the M-59 corridor !

I do it myself, isn't too hard.


For the cleaning i just get a gallon of the carb cleaner in the paint can from the auto store, and some toothbrushes and some other detail brushes.

Buy a rebuild kit, take apart old, clean and rebuild. Every rebuild kit i've used has a pretty good diagram. If you are worried snap some pictures as you tear it down.

I used to do those once or twice a week back in the day. If you were closer... Nothing like a fresh rebuild though.
