I had an AVS done locally here, and it was about 230 for it. He puts them on an engine that he has on a run stand and dials them in for you. He calls you up and lets you hear it running and idling, revving, etc. I was happy with it. I would say in your area, 300 US would be a fair amount, but a question came to me while writing this, does he replate them for that dollar amount? If so, that doesn't sound too hateful.
He said that will be the max per carb.. could be cheaper. so at most it would cost $1800 for the set with the linkages done to.

That kit sure looks like a center carb style kit. Like I've said not the 6 Pak kit.
Edit: that kit won't have the parts you need for the end carbs.
Yeah i agree now that i have pulled the carbs down. The Promaxx gear comes with some of the end stuff that i will need.
Plus if i get ProCarb ( the local carb replater) to do them, he said he has the correct parts to fit to. Will wait and see what i need once i get the Promaxx gear.

So I started assembling the transmission and got the shift kit installed. TF2. I got the transmission completely assembled on the weekend only to realise I made an error. I was looking through assembly photos and realised I hadn’t used any extra springs in the front drum like myself and the transmission guy had discussed. I had only 9 in there, where he recommendeds to use 15 and a different retainer. Think it’s a CRT piece. Anyway so I’ve had to disassemble and order more parts for it. On the plus side I know how to build one back the front because I had it all together and had to disassemble because I dropped the little E clip on the parking rod in there. Measure the end float and was within spec. So pretty happy with how the trans in going. Looking forward to it being together

I typically use either 10 or 12. Seldom used the 15. 12 is a good safe combo. Not sure what the TF 2 wants.
