Frequently asked questions

Please take a look at our FAQ section. If you still have questions don't hesitate to contact us.


1- Do you have any kind of warranty?

Yes, in fact our confidence in the quality of our carburetors is so high that we have one of the longest warranties in the industry. While others may offer only a 30, 60 or 90 day warranty at most, our warranty is for one full year!

2- How do I know if I need to replace my carburetor?

Good question. It's not unusual for us to advise our customers to let us test their carburetor first before they purchase a replacement unit. Even professional mechanics have been known to incorrectly diagnose a vehicle's problem as carburetor caused, when it may not be. Why buy parts you may not need?

3- My car has an engine of a different year installed in it. Do I match the carburetor to the vehicle year or the engine year?

Always match the carburetor to the make and year of engine, especially in order to pass California smog inspection specifications.

4- What if my original carburetor is missing from my vehicle? How do I know which carburetor I need?

That’s where we come in. We believe our cataloging to be among the most complete in the industry, and we have information on carburetors for decades of both well-known and little-known vehicles. Just give us a call!

5- What if you don’t have the carburetor I need in stock?

If that is the case, and we can’t find one to remanufacture from our thousands and thousands of cores on hand, then we can remanufacture yours. From start to finish, remanufacturing yours will usually be completed on the same day, and if shipping is required we normally ship as soon as the unit is completed.

6- Why are some carburetors more expensive than others?

Several reasons; some carburetors we have an over-stock of, so we frequently mark these down to clear them from our inventory. Others, especially the late model computerized carburetors, often use parts that are extremely expensive, even at the wholesale level we purchase them at. Some mixture control solenoids, for example, may cost hundreds of dollars each. And that's just one component.

7- Why do you call your carburetors "remanufactured", instead of "rebuilt"? What’s the difference?

The important difference is the quality of parts and work that go into each one of our remanufactured carburetors, and well as the sheer quantity of work. We prefer to use only the finest quality parts in each carburetor we remanufacture to provide a product designed to provide years of trouble-free use. Some suppliers aren’t able to live up to the standards we require, so we simply don’t deal with them.

When it comes to the labor performed on each of our units, it’s painstaking. While other rebuilders may just "throw a kit in" and make a few adjustments and may "spruce it up" using a can of spray paint, our technicians disassemble the carburetor into its component parts and put it through a thorough, multi-stage cleaning procedure designed to remove grime, rust, water scale and other contaminants. Only after the parts of the carburetor are cleaned inside and out are they sent to be machined.

Our machining process is where we truly shine, removing warps, correcting cracks, resurfacing mating surfaces, dressing mounting areas and rebushing throttle-shafts (which is standard with us). Some parts prone to corrosion are sent through a plating process. Many diaphragms are replaced. Only after this intensive procedure is complete is the carburetor sent for assembly.

Our assemblers pride themselves on producing a unit that exceeds O.E.M. specifications, rather than just meeting them. After assembly, the carburetor will be tested on a live running engine, as well as flow tested to ensure proper performance in all internal circuits. Then it’s on to final inspection, application of an anti-corrosive coating, then it’s packaged and labelled with the Recarbco name.

Since our carburetors are competitively priced, which would you prefer to spend your auto repair dollar on?Just a "rebuild" or a precision remanufactured carburetor from Recarbco?
