Any carb will act up if you get a piece of foreign material in the needle & seat. I,m with Carl. The Roch. may be an easy fix.

They say money can't buy happiness. It can buy old Chevy trucks though. Same thing.

OReillys still has listing for the tomco which is I think is rebuilt carter parts but you may get lucky or will have to check there rebuild work but they should have warranty .Also you may have a hard time finding one in stock but some of the prices of the ones are getting up there.

That picture does actually look like a rebuilt Carter instead of one of the Chinese fakes. If anything, it might serve as a rebuildable core with the proper Carbking kit.

I have used several to many daytona carburetors over the years,maybe 10 or so on various 6 cylinder vehicles and even forklifts, and have not had any issues with them. I would like to know any specific issues to look out for. The only thing I have noticed is that they don't seem to need a lot of choking when starting most times, maybe they are set kind of "fat" to start off with. I have actually met and talked to Ron at Daytona and he is a wealth of knowledge about carbs & fuel systems, and doesn't mind sharing his knowledge.

"I would like to know any specific issues to look out for."

Here is some info to use when you talk to Ron. See pages 7 and 9 at https://www.stovebolt.com/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/topics/1341243

The engine (261 cubic inch) has less power hauling a load than the previous carburetor (Rochester) and 5 to 10 percent less horsepower at the top end.

It would be very helpful if Ron could provide HP/torque/CI graphs of the testing Daytona has performed on their UN2 equipped engines.
It could be that, on our stovebolt engines, the Daytona UN2 is decent on a 216, superior (or as good) on a 235 but only tolerable on a 261.
