Angry Carburetor rebuilt night mare

I sent Dennis Barker at http://quadrajetcarburetors.com my Rochester carburetor for rebuilt on December 29, 2016. On February 2, he call me and told me that he was finishing up my carb to send him 450.00, which I did . The whole month of Feb and March I continually contacted him and it was one excuse after another. I never received my carb and the last message I received from him was April 5. He will not answer text or call.I ended up buying another carb and having it rebuilt. He had no bad reviews and some good accolades on the internet but he screwed me. He is in the Golden, CO area.

Hate to hear that, and sorry you had that experience. We had a recent build for someone that experienced a carb shop closing that had his carb. He didn't get it back.

Like many businesses, cost continue to rise. Supplies are getting harder to source, with many items discontinued from production, almost each week. Pretty scary for all of us. One of our manufactur/suppliers recently changed minimum order requirements and eliminated small operations from being able to order. Thankfully our volume is strong enough to continue but we did have to more than quadruple our supplies on hand.

I hope you end up with your carb, and an extra, and it isn't a total loss for you.

What a bummer, just had mine remanufactured by a local shop Carburation Specialties
1-928-854-7653. Dropped it off at noon on Tuesday, picked it up at 2 PM Wednesday.
$250.00 complete! Bolted onto car and it runs beautifully!! Highly recommend!

Why not get the better business bureau to rattle his cage! You know they can shut him down and pull his license. That is if you have proof! Been there and done that here in Kansas.
