Recommendations needed for a reliable Quadrajet restorer/re-builder. Primary shaft will need to be re-bushed.
Thanks,Steve.

Cliff's high performance is supposed to be good.  Read this thread.

I got mine done by Carb Junkys http://www.carbjunkys.com/
They refinished each part to their original finish (example: goldish body, zinc colored butterfly's, etc) and they provided an 18 day turnaround and a good price.
It even had new shaft bushings installed.
It was important to me to have the correct finish on each part instead of an all gold carb + parts refinish I have seen on so many 'restored' carbs.
The only finish not preserved was the green Teflon coated shaft ends (mine were rough anyways). I used an approximately matched color enamel for those 2 small sections visible on the outside.

I have used this service for a friends car, as stated in listing he tunes your Carb. to your specific use.  We bolted the Carb. on and and ran perfect right out of the box.

It does not appear that he restores them, only rebuilds them.

I have used "Carbjunkys" on 2 quadrajet full restorations and thought they did excellent work. Talked to them several times and they really seemed to be informative.

I have used Eric at Vintage Musclecar Parts, great service and the best restoration from appearance to performance.
He discussed everything in detail needed to restore, as well as kept to the price he quoted upon receipt and teardown for estimate.

I agree that Eric is an excellent source as he has restored carbs (4) for us but they were Holleys as he was not doing quadrajets for awhile and now back to them again or was last year or so. Have never used Custom Rebuilt Carbs but have heard nothing but good things about them. Talked to owner at Carlisle and he seemed like a real nice car guy. Do a search here on CRG and you will find some previous discussions concerning this topic.
