Default Where buy qjet

I'm looking to get a backup carb for my 78... just curious about experiences of where people are getting them besides ebay/auction/craigs list.

Anyone use any of the following and if so, what were your thoughts on the quality of the product?




National Carbs?

Mid America Motorworks?



Other? If so... where?

If I were going to buy a carb outright, I'd probably go with Sean Murphy Inductions based on what I've HEARD.

I don't think Cliff or Lars sells carbs outright, but if either of them do that'd be my first choice.

Most of the commercial rebuilders, otherwise, are garbage. Even Holley.
