My carb spew's out a bunch of fuel after turning over. 1972 Chevelle Malibu 350cid, Rochester 2 bbl 2GV 7042114.
I'm looking for someone close by in my area ( Mississauga, Toronto GTA area ) that rebuild's carb's, I don't have the skill set for rebuilding carbs. I located a fellow in Ottawa, but I'd like someone closer.
Hard starting issue, the car had little driving time since I bought it last year. Followed a few threads here to help diagnose the root cause.
On a cold start it runs for 3-5 seconds then stops, as I crank it over a few seconds then I stop, a lot of fuel spews from the vent into the throat of the carb.
I believe it's either a dirty, worn or faulty needle valve and seat. Most likely dirty - Gosh dang, my fault for leaving the fuel tank low on gasoline! Probably sediment got through the filter. I've had this happen before with a 4 bbl holly on a 454, replaced the needle & seat and got up and running again, eventually replacing my old gas tank and fuel line filters.
I might as well get it rebuilt since I'm still planning the full restoration sequence and budget. If anyone has a referral, I really appreciate your help!
