Which would be better for short term (a few weeks max), the freshly rebuilt Eddie or the Q-Jet in need of a rebuild? $40 for a canister, $55 for a pump that provides 16hg and is smaller....? My other motor is getting tired so I'm trying to get this carb thing figured out asap so I can swap motors and be back up and running in a weekend because for at least a couple more months it is my daily driver. I already get 11mpg so how much worse can it get? Ultimately I'm thinking Holley 670vs or 750vs but for some reason everyone in the Portland area thinks those are worth $150-$200 all beat up. Seattle area has fresh rebuilt ones for that price but I'm leary of buying carbs sight unseen.
