Holley Carbs

Could I buy swap-meet Holleys for relatively cheep, give them a good cleaning and rebuild, could I make any profit off of doing it?

I have no job, and am looking for a little $$... figured I might as well become self-employed.

You need to know what to look for when buying, and you need to know how to repair an old carb.

-Throttle shafts can be bushed in most cases. Welding the end of the throttle shaft is helpful.

-Checking for flatness.

There isn't much money in it unless you do a lot of them. There is already stiff competetion on Ebay. Selling locally may actually make you more profit.

When you buy or sell makes a big difference. Time of year, time of day, and time of week.

Mispelling items is bad if you are the seller, good if you are the buyer.

A can of carb cleaner and some fine steel wool will do wonders when you are selling a carb. Just don't go crazy with the wool because you will start wearing off the finish.

thanks for the advice, it'll be a good learning experience and maybe a little much needed $$. Nothing big though, more to stay busy.
