Holley carb with odd #

First post to this board. Hope you all are doing well. I am a mechanic with a state agency in Oregon. I have a 1950 Chevy Business Coupe with a 54 full pressure 235. I'm running a Holley single barrel carb that I found somewhere, years ago. I'm having some trouble finding a rebuild kit for it. Holley 1238-1. May be an industrial carb off a forklift or something but all Holley suppliers on-line show nothing with that number. Anybody familiar with this product or know of a good carb store with knowledgable help, sure would appreciate a note.
Thanks,

For those it is good to know about inliners.org those guys do nothing but the inline engines and help with a source for parts..

Another guy is Langdons stovebolt stoveboltengineco.com they carry a good amountof stuff for those guys..

Hope you get sorted out

Holley w/odd #

Well, I checked with my neighborhood NAPA and Mike found the rebuild kit in about 1 minute. 1238.1 translates to a 1204 carb. Less than $20 and out the door. Just goes to show that online cataloges are not the only way to go. Gotta love the oldtimers too.
Thanks
