    Default Any tips for a newbie to rebuild a Holley Carb

    I am looking for any tips, I need to rebuild my Holley 650. My freind said he can do it but it will take over a week for him to do it. I am wondering if I can do it quicker, I have rebuilt motorcycle carbs before with the help of a factory tech book. Should I wait for my buddie or can I go at it myself. Is there any on line resources to help guide me. Thanks

    If your going to do it yourself it's not very difficult..the only suggestion I would have is you should have access to a compressor.

    Can you post a part number? You'll find it on the choke horn and it will look something like -

    RXXXX or RXXXXX and may have a dash number after it.

    mandatory items:

    1ea, large piece of black felt, 3' x 3' is a good size.

    This is for ANY carb work, this way, any small parts dropped, never leave the work surface and are easilly located. Then, you can figure out "where'd that come from???"

    The ONLY parts you will ever truly need this for, are small, steel, check balls and the like which, without the felt, instantly bounce into the neitherworld, never to be seen again, and they are not included in the rebuild kit.

    Some manner of carburetor feet, or a stand, is seccondary, but VERY nice to have.

    I've never had much luck(good) either.
    It's been my past experiance that the rebuild kits do not come with any throttle shaft bushings.

    My friend did not go to work today, he said it was too hot to work. So he sat in garage with a fan blowing on him and did it himself. So I got him a gift card to his favorite dinner spot here in town, took it home, installed it and fired up my motor...It purred. I am very happy Thanks, RON !
