That's the rub...these stupid carbs have been out of production for decades, and parts are getting tight. There are no kits...just random parts/gaskets/etc at varying prices...most coming from Norway or Sweden.
May be worth a shot though...I'm game for trying. Worst case scenario would be sending a box of parts to the carb guy and saying "fix it".
