The carburetor is one of the most important parts in automobile engines. The carburetor ensures the right mix of gasoline and air in the engine so that the engine functions correctly. Though very few car manufacturers use carburetors these days because of alternative fuel injection technology, there are many people who still prefer to service the carburetors in their old cars. Carburetors are also used in lawnmowers, bikes, boats, and some light aircraft.
Carburetors are rebuilt professionally using original equipment cores. They are tested individually and can be delivered within 4-6 weeks. Most manufacturers provide rebuilt carburetors that comply with the emission standards of all the 50 states in the US. Rebuilt carburetors come with base gaskets and a full warranty for manufacturing defects for 90 days or 3,000 miles, whichever is earlier. Most manufacturers limit the guarantee to repair or replacement of any faulty unit. Losses over the cost of the carburetor or damage to the vehicle because of the carburetor are not covered under the warranty.
Rebuilding carburetors involves disassembling the carburetor and other related components in the fuel system. These parts are cleaned with a carburetor cleaner. Then the spoiled or broken parts are replaced using new parts from a carburetor kit. Rebuilt carburetors do not include brackets, idle solenoid, air cleaner studs, mounting bolts, or heat baffle plates.
A carburetor in a simple engine like a lawn mower can be rebuilt by anyone following the instruction manual. A carburetor kit also allows people to rebuild a carburetor in older cars. There are several websites over the Internet that contain information about carburetor rebuilding. These sites also provide carburetor rebuild kits for many car models including pickup trucks, SUVs, vans, and recreational vehicles. These kits can be ordered online and are usually shipped on the same day. Companies also provide professional support by technicians who would take a look at the engine and help to decide the best carburetor kit for rebuilding the carburetor.
