FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

 

Aircraft Carburetors – We do not and will not supply parts or ANY services for aircraft carburetors. NO EXCEPTIONS. This is true regardless of how the aircraft carburetor is currently being used.

 

Carburetor Identification – We regret we can no longer identify carburetors 'gratis'. This was a service that was badly abused. If you have carburetors you wish identified/appraised, please call for instructions/pricing.

 

Catalogs – We can print a catalog of repair kits, which due to the large kit availability that we make, is several thousand pages. This is available only to new distributors WITH their initial distributorship order. Companies wishing to become distributors please call, and ask for Jon. We do not publish a comprehensive catalog. As we can machine several hundred thousand individual carburetor parts, the cost would be enormous. Much of the kit catalog is published on this website. You are welcome to download and print.

 

Communications – Our fax is incoming only, faxes will not be answered. Emails are answered from an off-site computer where we have the repair kit database, and the carburetor database. All questions other than repair kit availability and price, and carburetor availability should be asked via telephone.

 

LP-Carburetors – We do not now and never will supply parts or services for LP carburetors. NO EXCEPTIONS.

 

Partial Restorations – We do not do partial restorations (i.e. bush throttle bodies, color castings, etc.). We will be happy to quote total restoration on the entire carburetor.

 

Parts. – Our minimum sale is always a carburetor rebuilding kit. Parts contained in the rebuilding kit will not be sold separately. Parts not contained in a rebuilding kit will be sold only with the purchase of a rebuilding kit.

 

Payment – We accept MasterCard/VISA. We also accept personal or business checks (will delay shipping of your order), and money orders. Checks, if used, must be drawn on a bank doing business in the USA, and payable in US dollars. Money orders, if used, must be either US postal money orders, or bank money orders drawn on a bank doing business in the USA. We will NOT accept “third-party” checks or money orders.

 

Pictures – We are happy to take digital pictures of any item that we have for sale. There is a prepaid $25.00 per picture charge that will be refunded upon the purchase of the item in question, if the purchased item is $500.00 or more. There are no refunds on lesser items.  The requests for free pictures were widely abused. Those wishing pictures, please call to let us know quantity and poses required.

 

Rebuilding/Restoration – We do only complete mechanical and cosmetic restoration of carburetors. For those not needing this level of work, we offer rebuilding kits.

 

Shipping – All shipping is done via UPS. Orders requiring other shipping will be regretfully refused. Orders may be picked up at our store.

 

SMOG EMISSIONS – The Federal Clean Air Act of 1966 provides in part that 'no licensed shop shall disable nor provide information to disable smog emission equipment on vehicles subject to this ACT'. This applies to ALL licensed vehicles produced for the 1968 or newer model year and sold in the United States. Competition and/or off-road (not-licensed) vehicles are not subject to this ACT (at least through 1974, which is our cut-off date). We can make modifications or advise modifications to vehicles of years 1968 through 1974 only if you have previously provided a notarized letter to us stating that the vehicle in question is not subject to the Federal Clean Air Act, and specify both the V.I.N. and the reason for exception. There will be no exceptions to this policy other than an official letter from the Environment Protection Agency authorizing us to make changes.

 

Tags – selling of carburetor tags for 1968 and newer vehicles is unlawful (see above paragraph on smog emissions). The selling of tags for pre-1968 carburetors may be lawful, but is asking for trouble. The ONLY way we will provide a carburetor tag is if we restore the carburetor, or sell a used carburetor that has the tag. ABSOLUTELY NO EXCEPTIONS!

 

Tax – all sales within the state of Missouri are subject to current Missouri sales tax, unless the purchaser provides us with written proof that the purchaser is exempt from paying state sales tax.
