A service person in todays shop must be able to deal with problems in hundreds of different cars and trucks. We, as auto hobbyists have only a few or one car to deal with. You can learn everything about that car and be more knowledgeable than anyone. With the Internet any problem you’ve had has happened to others. There’s just no reason to learn carbs as a business unless you try and make it a specialty service shop. The guy with an old stocker is not going to pay for 4 or so hours at $50 t0 $100 an hour to rebuild his carb when the car is worth $500. The real problem happens when a Technician with a big ego will not admit that he has little knowledge in a particular area.
