My I-6 66 coupe is up and running but I know nothing has been done to the carb in...ever. The car's just a weekend cruiser and the plan is to just upgrade/repair what I can to make it a reliable, safe ride. So I'm wondering whether I should just rebuild the Autolite 1100 (or have a guy do it for $150) or think of getting a whole different unit which might be more steady. Again, not looking for top performance.
Thanks for the opinions!

Thought of doing it myself, still might, but also think it will never get done if I wait for a free day.

I rebuilt my 1100 autolite carb and was amazed at how easy it was. It is a very simple carb. You will probably do a better job than the other guy!

+1 ...The hardest part is buying a kit. Autozone told me it wasnt available ...Oriellys had to order it , but had it for me a few days later.

If your not upgrading it I would spend the time and do it myself. I would pay the $150 only if you really don't have the time. Good luck.

It's an excellent carb, far better than the Ford Service Replacement carbs. Dead easy to rebuild, a child could do it.

All right, you all have convinced me. I'll save the $150 for something else, like the suspension! Thanks.

Rebuild it ur self I rebuilt my autolite 2100, it was easier than i thought, just pull it apart clean it and replace the parts in the kit and put it back on the car, do a search and follow the procedures for the 1100
