I would suggest joining VCCA and you will find many services offered by VCCA members. Forest Sweet in Lake Jackson Tx is one who post on this site and is very familiar with various Chev carbs. Email is chevychip@yahoo.com or 979-233-1600. Locally I had Hobbs Carb in Pelham rebuild my W-1 carb and while it was not a show quality rebuild it functions fine and was very price competitive. I did have to paint the body myself but as I said it works fine. They can be reached @ 603-635-2415. For comparision some shops get $200.00 or so for a show quality rebuild while Hobbs did mine for $90.00.
