Quote from: bigskypc50mt on September 20, 2022, 05:28 PMHello all I turn to you fine folks to help me out. I am trying to get someone to rebuild my carburetor and it's looking like the cost to rebuild around 350.00 for a non Gov model. 3 more hours if it is a governor model. Not to far off the cost of a new one. Or over the cost. My carb on there now says list 4399. A Holley 4150 Governed the tech at Holley said. And they don't sell those types anymore. So my question is how do you tell the difference between a gov carb and not gov carburetor. Would my rig likely have a gov carb. Also would a Holley 80457s make a good bolt on replacement? Anyone use that one before thanks

Engine sits for X years rebuild or replace any fluid and rubber hose along with the carb. Depending what mood it's in, It will actually idle when warm. Other half the time it won't stay running when warmed up. It don't leak. I am half temped to remove it shoot carb cleaner all over it and in it and feed it some seafoam or B12. there is already B12 in the tank. I did call Holley and they suggest that part number I listed in my first post for truck version of my engine without the gov. I do do most all of my own work, I converted a 42ft school bus (skoolie) into a tiny home so the entire RV/House part is no problem for me and the woodworking etc. I do nearly all my engine work expect tires and carbs.
