Please Read This if you are sending a carb to us.

A couple of quick notes for sending carburetors here.

Do NOT use USPS flat rate in a small box that barely holds the carburetor, it will get damaged EVERY SINGLE TIME.

Use at least a 12 x 12 x 12 box.

Do not use those foam "peanuts" to pack the carb unless it is wrapped well with bubble wrap first.

Bubble wrap to protect the carb surrounded by "peanuts" or newspaper is fine.

Make sure to include your NAME, RETURN SHIPPING INFO, and PHONE NUMBERS.  We keep getting carbs sent to the shop with no information whatsoever.  Just because you talked to us, or sent an email, doesn't mean we will remember your carb when it show up days or weeks later.

Also include ALL of the engine, drivetrain and vehicle specs, so we know what we are building the carb for?

Make sure to TELL US if you want the carb parts plated, and castings zinc/chromated (restoration).  Most likely we will not remember this from a phone conversation weeks earlier.

Just pointing out some basics here.  We get hundreds of carbs sent here, and about 1/4 of them have NOTHING in the box, and at most a name on the shipping label, so we have no idea why they are here, or what to do with them, or even in the name on the label is actually the owner or not......thanks. for listening......Cliff
