Looking for a Reliable Carburetor Rebuilder


I need to have a concours quality rebuild of my Quadrajet carb. I've been looking online but can't seem to find out who is who in this business. 

There was a company called Carburetor Rebuilders on Eugene St. In Oshawa. Are they still in business and recommended?

There is also a company in Oshawa called the Carb Guys, located on Fices Rd. Are they recommended? 

What about Moffat in Jarvis Ontario, who advertise in Old Autos? 

Interested in any feedback or recommendations on these or other carb builders in Canada who can refurbish the carb mechanically and cosmetically.

Thanks

When you say concours John, you mean you want the body re Dichromated, and all the levers, rods and fasteners replaced or replated?

This is not just a general rebuild you're after. You want it to look factory new or better as well?

Yes that's correct, I want it to look and work like it just came from the factory. 

Thanks for all the leads. I'll check them out.

John, I had mine done at Autoline in Winnipeg. They have been there at least 40 years because it was about 40 years ago that I had my first factory tour there. I was very impressed, have sold their products since although getting to be less and less of course. They did my 427 carb just like I wanted it. I'm not a fan of the "over restored" look.

Moffat did the quadrajet for my Beaumont but I haven't had a chance to really try it out.

 Carburetor Rebuilders used to be on Eugene St in Toronto, they moved to Fices Rd Oshawa and are now known as the Carb Guys.

I had them rebuild my 68 Quadrajet, and it works well.

The thing I like about using Autoline is they put the carb on a flow bench after it's rebuilt. I don't know of many carb shops that own or use a flow bench to test carbs.

 That's exactly how I want the carb to look. Seems I actually have a lot of good choices in Canada. Thanks to all for the recommendations. I'm going to call a few of them andI'll  let you know who I go with.

I was told that this US shop was a good source for carb restorations.   Is it worth the extra money in exchange that is high at the moment?

 If you want a concourse restoration with the proper plating then yes. Im not sure how many, if any, carb rebuilders in Canada replate them as originals were done.

Copied and pasted from my post last fall.

I'm lazy today biggrin

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

I ordered, UREMCO Remanufactured Carburetor from Summit Racing.

"United Remanufacturing Co. has over 60 years of experience in carburetor rebuilding.

As fuel system rebuilders with expertise and stringent standards, they ensure you the best quality at the best price.

They rebuild carburetors from most all automobile and truck manufacturers, and each one is,

individually inspected and rigorously tested on flow-bench engine simulators by seasoned and knowledgeable employees."

As they state, each carb has been pretested.

My car fired right up and no adjustments are needed.

Not a real rocket, just a solid, smooth running machine.

Moffat did my Rochester quadrajet when I did the four barrel swap a few years ago. No issues in the last six years with the carb. All good.

I have tried to contact Moffat's a number of times but there is no answer to the phone and I have not found a web site. 

I have also contacted Autoline in St. John's and Winnipeg. St. John's told me to deal with Winnipeg, and head office in Winnipeg told me that I need to work through a retailer like NAPA or another parts retailer who deals with them to get my carb done. 

For those who have dealt with Autoline, does this sound right? 

Thanks

Carburetor Rebuilders did the Q-Jet for my 69. Amazing job, everything replated and flow tested. Bolted it on and ran perfect.
