    It’s been awhile since I rebuilt a carb, but a good start with them all separated and layed out. I went the lazy route and bought a new Edelbrock... the original is in a box in the garage.

    Sonic cleaning really get's them clean. Soaking in the can of carb cleaner dose take a while but will do a good job also. :thumbsup2:

    Looks good. I used the carb cleaner method, it did take awhile but turned out nice.

    For the rebuild I used a kit from thermoquad. I picked up a gallon can of carburetor solvent for soaking and cleaning. When it was done soaking and cleaned I took it to a local guy I know and had the bushings replaced. The rebuild kit had everything you would need for a rebuild (minus any new jets).
