Has anyone been successful at rehabbing an old carburetor (in this case, a Carter AS) without a rebuild kit? I'm a CASO and the carb cost me $25. A kit will run around $50 and this one-barrel is not in terrible shape, but I'm sure it hasn't been used in years. Can I soak the acc pump, for example? Thanks!

For the price of one tank of gas, I would buy the kit.

Don't try to re use the old parts as the results will be less than acceptable. Spend the money for a kit, you won't regret it. Bud

I spoke with Bob at a Carburetor shop in Citrus Hills, CA today and he had me send him the gaskets, pump, needle and seat so he can match with new. He said there were more than a few versions of the AS carb and mine came with no tag.
