Holley booster replacement, parts and tools?

Does anybody know where I can get a reasonably priced tool for properly securing the booster pins?

Also, does anybody other than Holley offer replacement boosters for 4160/4150 carbs? Everything in the aftermarket, that I've found, is for 4500 carbs.

Check out BLP or Braswell for parts. I remember checking into the installation tools, and they are around $300.

Pay a real carb shop to do it. It cost less than $100 for the part's and installation.

tool

I bought my tool off of e-bay for next to nothing... They show up there from time to time...

If you only need to do one carb i'll send you mine if you pay the shipping both ways,,,, And promise to re-turn it to me,,, If not my ex special forces brother will track you down and remove an important part of your body as payment!!!!! L.O.L.

As for the booseter i have not found any real deals on them but many places do see them as well as holley themselves... I have not asked him but i am sure patrick james at pro systems http://www.pro-system.com/pjames011900.html
would sell them to you...Also AED http://www.aedperformance.com/
sells them...

Thanks for the offer K-Star. I might just do that if you think that these can't be repaired in the carb. The bottom edge of the boosters got a little warm last Sunday. Yes, I know I need to lay off the juice, beat me up about it later.

Anyway, here's a few pics of the damage.

See the bottom edge of the boosters there.


The damage doesn't look too bad.


Here's a close up at a bit of an angle.



I have a cone shaped stone that I could use to deburr the edges. I figured since the damage doesn't reach up to the edge/step above the fuel inlet that I could knock off the blobs and go with it. What do you think?

This place sells the tool, but is costly.
I picked up my annular booster's from them.

Well, I went ahead and did it anyway. I figured all I could do was screw up a screwed up part. It looks good, it remains to be seen if the booster signal will be sufficient. I suppose it can't hurt to be hopeful, and eyeball the plugs.

Thanks to everybody for the information and thanks to Keith for offering the use of his tools to a stranger.

Here's a pic of the result.

In the second picture it looks like three of your boosters were pretty much messed up but, the fourth looks okay. In the last picture they all look good. Looks like you just may have dodged a bullet. I'd like to hear how it turned out when you get it back on the car. BTW, how did you fry it in the first place?

Had a little ignition hiccup on the top end. Not a good thing to happen with a stout shot of nitrous.

boosters

Larry, I would try it..you have nothing to loose. Let use know how it works.... Unless it goes faster then just PM me with the new booster thinckess...

I like the sauce also, so i am not going to get on your case about a small fire......not to get you all worked up but ,usually when they sneeze like that there is more damage.....

Yeah, it fried a few more things and killed the rod bearings but that's their problem, all I deal with is the fuel system.
