Need carbs rebuilt on 92 1500

Postby Davek80514 » Sat Jun 21, 2014 12:11 pm



I have a 92 1500 and I need the carbs rebuilt. Dealer here in Colorado wants $510.00 in labor. Anyone in Colorado know a good place to get this done less expensively?

Thanks..
Dave..

Just curious Dave. What is happening that makes you think the carbs need rebuilding?

Dingdong. Lack of power, backfire through carbs, rough idle, miss at idle, gas smell every so often.

well, it is a PITA to get at the carbs lots of stuff has to come off. If you get it done make sure they replace all the hoses under there and while they are at it you might want to replace all your bulbs..radio etc, or replace with LED's. Look in the how to.

You could try some sea foam and/or get at the carbs and watch them run..see if a slide is stuck or not squirting gas from pump..or take them off and take them in should cut a lot of $$$ off the price of the rebuild..

Anyone have a list of the size of the tubes connected to the carbs? That way I can get all the sizes needed when the carbs get rebuilt?
