Just out of curiousity, does your Holley look like mine? I know of someone in Colorado that specialises in rebuilding Q-Jets, but I don't know if he still does Holley'*. If you don't have any luck I can try to find his email address if you'd like.

Thanks, unfortunately mine doesn't look nice and shiny... I guess my biggest issue is getting all the gunk stripped off and the surfaces refinished.

Wow, I need to do the same to my dad'* 64 Galaxie 500 in the garage... it'* got a Holley too... Unfortunately, we gotta uncover the car first haha.

Make sure you get the number off the side of the carb when you go to get/order the kit. It'* available at O'Reilly I know for sure. Not too sure bout Autozone.

It can't be hard to rebuild yourself. People complain about the Qjets being hard to work on, but I rebuilt mine last year and it was simple. I didn't do anything to it other than clean it and put in new parts from the kit, but it was easy.
