Sorry guys not sure where to post this..

I have an old 4100 Chevy 6 cyl, its original Rochester Monojet is in desperate need of TLC..

I'm looking for a good carby shop who can actually rebuild it properly. From experience, its more of an art than anything else..

Searching the forum, only yielded recommendations to buy new. I doubt i'm going to get that right with this..

The Google machine spat out 2,
1.) Super Carb Auto, Nugget street Jhb
2.) The Carb shop, Industria Jhb

Any feedback on these guys or recommendations on other places??

Thanx..

Oom Johann has someone that he used for the monojet in the past.

I'm sure he will be on here to advise :D

Hullo Mark,
My contact in Vereeniging has retired but apparently still works from home.
Other option is that I e-mail you all the Rochester data I have. :D Absolute detailed data!
Re-build and tech data :mrgreen:
I liked Dan's work as he was able to flow-test the carb, No adjustment was required, you just fitted and drove away :D

Sorry for the late reply, got busy.

Thanx everyone for the help.
I havent had anything done on it yet, but found a guy who builds some nice hotrods, says he's done it a few times. He offered to teach me how to rebuild it myself, Be good experience to learn something new.
