    Looking for a carb guy on the side

    I have a Rochester quadrajet on a 350 in a 72 k5 blazer. I know nothing about carbs so I'm trying to see if any of you know somebody capable of either troubleshooting, or rebuilding the one I have. I know there are great shops in town, but I was hoping there might be somebody capable that can walk me thru it etc. or make some cash on the side, and take care of the issue for me.

    If they don't put bushings in the primary shaft, look elsewhere. You can do a gasket change yourself pretty easy, anything more than that requires some pretty good knowledge on a quadra jet. There's a reason many of them were junked.
