Carburetors are fairly simple parts to rebuild, therefore going out and spending over 150.00 is not something I would recommend. The only way I would actually replace one is if one of the sections is warped and leaking fuel, or the carburetor has caught fire. Rebuild kits usually cost between 20.00 and 75.00. If you are having an issue with fuel delivery, inside the carburetor. You may look at replacing the accelerator plump diaphragm or the blowout valve on the carburetor, also the fuel filter. If you have a Carter, or a Chrysler Carburetor, the accelerator pump is internal, just rebuild it.
