This evening, I went over to Advance Auto Parts and finally did it. I plunked down the cash to buy a new carburetor. I found the best deal in town on a rebuilt unit, so I jumped on it. I also got a nice surprise, when they told me that it would be delivered to the store Saturday afternoon. I though it would take several days.
Hopefully the install will go smoothly, and this truck will be running again next week. But just in case, I saw Racecar Man and told him that I am going to install it Saturday night or Sunday afternoon. He knows that I am generally in over my head on this project, so I might end up with a little help on this project.
