The Carb Shop
DON't LEAVE YOUR CLASSIC ON THE CURB WAITING FOR CARBS
There's nothing worse than getting to the end of your restoration only to leave it unfinished because the last few parts are at a shop, waiting in line, leaving your car off the road for the foreseeable future. Here at Black Forest, we set up our 190SL Solex carburetor restoration and repair workshop to prevent that.
We've always got pristine cores on-hand, ready for install, just waiting for your project to come in. No waiting, just get what you need to get your classic back on the road.
Above you can see the grit that has built up on the right versus the smooth, shiny surface on the left following multiple rounds of sanding and polishing. Replacing a gasket can only do so much when the surface of the metal itself no longer allows a tight fit.
MORE THAN JUST A DEEP CLEAN
Many shops have a questionable definition of restoration, simply doing a deep clean and maybe removing and replacing some gaskets that are easy to reach.
At Black Forest we tear the whole thing down, file down the buildup, strip and replate parts, and repair or reproduce any part that doesn't meet our standards. This is not a couple hours with a brush wiping away grime. This is a total rebuild of an essential aspect of your classic's performance.
THE CARB EXCHANGE
We've set up our shop to keep things moving. If you've got a Solex carburetor, we'll have restored cores waiting for you. Send your current set in and, as long as they're in reasonable shape, we can exchange them with our restored cores so you don't have to wait around.
High-quality restoration at set prices without waiting? If you can beat that we'd love to know how.
