Additional Service Options & Products:
A) Line-Reaming & Re-Bushing of Carb Bodies - $65.00 per carb.
It's important to note that, unlike many rebuilders, we do not ream the carburetor body all the way through to the bore; but, in line with the SU factory recommendations, they are line-reamed only to the exact length of the new bushes. The resulting shoulder can be clearly seen in the image on the right.
This significantly improves the sealing of the throttle shaft.

NOTE:If your carbs do require re-bushing, we will contact you for your approval, before the work is started.
B)The "Do-it-Yourself" Re-Bushing Service
If you are doing
the carburetor rebuild yourself, we will gladly re-bush your worn carburetor bodies. The charge is $85.00 per body, which covers the line-reaming of the body, and the fitting of new standard size bushes.
PLEASE NOTE: This price assumes that the carburetors will be supplied completely disassembled. If carbs are received in an assembled, or partly assembled condition, a price for the work necessary to carry out the work, will be quoted via email for approval, before the re-bushing work commences.
New standard-size throttle shafts are not included, but can be installed for an extra charge, if required. As with any additional parts, these will be charged at the current retail price, as advertised by the major suppliers.

These lines are suitable for all contemporary fuels, including those "enhanced" with Ethanol; both leaded, and unleaded. The Petroflex ends, and the nickel-plated clamps are imported by us from the UK. The braided fuel line is sourced here in the US.
D) Stainless Steel Suction Chamber, Float Chamber Screws, and Washers
screws are manufactured from 18/8 Stainless Steel and are direct
replacements for the original Suction Chamber, and Float Chamber screws. These are fitted as standard on all our carburetor rebuilds, but are also available for purchase separately. The washers for the float chambers, which are also in 18/8 stainless steel, can be selected as an option when ordering. This a great way to brighten up your engine bay, for very little cost.
They are available in sets suitable for the various
carburetors. For comparison purposes, the current Moss Motors price for
the equivalent regular carbon steel screw (370-290) is $0.90 each, with a
minimum shipping charge of $8.95. Our shipping charge is just $1.95 per set.
NOTE: The HIF set includes only the Suction Chamber Screws, as the Float Chamber screws are a different type, and size. When we are rebuilding HIF's we always replace the original float bowl cover screws with socket-head cap screws - see E) below.
ORDER NOW To order these screws, or any other service or product, please go to our Order Form
E) HIF Socket-Head Float Bowl Screws
One of the frequent problems with the HIF carbs, is removing the slotted-head float bowl screws while they are still on the car. Plus, it is sometimes difficult to get a good fuel-tight seal, particularly once the screw slots are worn, or damaged. The solution? We always replace the standard scews with these socket-head screws. They allow for easy removal of the float bowl cover for essential cleaning, and they provide a good snug fuel-tight seal when replacing them.
ORDER NOW You can purchase them in sets of 8 (for 2 carbs) for $5.95, plus $1.95 for postage by Clicking Here
F) Repair of HS-series Float Bowl Lug ($45.00 per carb)
This covers the repair of the cast lug when broken or damaged. The lug is used to ensure the float chamber is maintained in an upright position.
You will be contacted for authorization to continue if this is found to be required required during a rebuild.
The images on the left below shows the broken lug (circled in black marker), with the repaired body on the right.
