Default 4150 base plate advise

The carb on the boy's stang has a base plate probelm (bushings worn out)

Is it cheaper to get one rebuilt? > where would one go to get this done?
We're in the Memphis, Tn metro area > or should we just bite the bullet and buy a new one?
I seen some billet ones on Ebay and jegs for around $150

The reason I'm asking is he or we don't have alot of money to throw around on this but it needs taken care of.

It's a Holley 750 double pumper.


Thx in advance for any advise, Cp

If I happen to have on laying around in the shop in decent shape do you think you could change it yourself. If you could post a pic or two it might help me find what your looking for.

Nah man, I dont think I can handle it, I've heard those 4150's are really complicated :shock: J/K

I've being working on cars/engines/carbs longer than I care to mention, but thx for the offer.

Thx Jimmy, I didnt realize Tony had moved into dynotechs shop, last I heard he was somewhere by Als golfhaven off of summer Ave.
Him and Rickie Stenhouse are neighbors huh, that's nice to know.

The boy didnt want to wait on me and my post so he got impaient and ordered a new QF billet base plate saturday night plus a new set of slicks. :?

As always> Thx for the replies, Cp
