Default 1981 E4ME rebuild

I will start by saying I DO NOT want to rebuild my carb myself. Is there anyone here on the forum that will clean and rebuild? TIA

Send an e-mail to Lars Grimsrud [email protected] and ask him if he will rebuild it. He's the best and, if he rebuilds it, it will be right.

Thanks 7T1, I will send him an email but I thought he was not rebuilding the E4ME anymore.

I don't know what carbs he will work on; just thought you should try.

I don’t think Lars does these but he’ll know who to try.

Sorry, but I don't do the ECM-controlled carbs. I have no way to run them and test them on my test engine, and I don't believe there is any way to properly rebuild a carb without a complete functional test on a running engine.

So what if I/we/someone, made up a way to test them on your mule?
