broken base plate/throttle body prompted us to call Chicago Corvette Supply for a replacement, and while talking to Alf Fierke, the guy who runs things there, we decided that a top-to- bottom rebuild would be a good idea while we were at it, since the carb is an original unit off a 1967 big block. A few days later the base plate/throttle body and the rebuild kit arrived, so it was off to the workbench to get started. Here’s what it took to get the carb back in proper working order.
