    What makes you think the carb needs replacing? Either way you could get the carb from them and still have the same issue unless you are sure about the cause. Personally I would rebuild it myself (which I just finished doing for my van). Its not hard. The hardest part is trakcing the vacuum and coolant hoses that were disconnected and getting it back in there right.

    Was having choke problems at start up.
    Would not move choke up 15% on start up. Which caused rich fuel mixture with slight black smoke and and bad fumes.
    After spraying really well with PB blaster and moving parts around with small screw driver. Seems to have solved issue.
