I haven't seen rebuild kits for the 4100. How much are the kits? Trying to decide to buy a rebuilt one or rebuildable one.
Thanks again.

I would rebuild yours, A kit shouldnt be more than 15-30 bucks. It's really not that hard at all.

I don't have one yet. Trying to decide whether I should get one that needs to be rebuilt and rebuild it myself, or buy one that's ready to go.

Motorcraft makes a pretty good kit, for about $15, but doesn't include replacement secondary pump valve. Almost all of the kits don't include replacement fuel floats, so get brass floats separately. Avoid the plastic ones.

I've been that route with a 4300 that I have. Got a good rebuild kit from Car Quest for about fifteen bucks. I'll never do it again though unless it's something obvious and simple that's wrong. I think the smart way is to take it to an expert with a flow bench and let him do his thing. I did just that with my last project and that was without a doubt the best outside-party investment of the project; about a hundred bucks, no leaks no adjustments to make, and a huge power improvement.

Mark-
One thing you might want to consider when you get your carb rebuilt (or do it yourself), is having someone bush the throttle-plate rod. The rods have no bushing from the factory and ride right in the carb base casting. After thirty-five years of use, most of these older carbs have worn their bores egg-shaped and leak air.
