Just completed a transaction with Rick and received my 45 dellortos today. After another samba transaction gone sour in which my carbs, rebuild kits, and parts were stolen, Rick reached out to offer some help. I should have gone with Rick to begin with.

Rick kept me updated with photos, very reasonable rates, detailed receipt, basic tuning for my setup and I could not have asked for an easier process. Thank you Rick for restoring some confidence and providing a great rebuild service!

Im Very Impressed with Rick 1st experience to the top Customer Service, very Humble, Quality,Person, Equal treatment on who ever you are. Whats fading away this days. I had CALLED SOMEONE ELSE in the site, he acted like he was the only one on earth doing it, maybe was a robot.

2nd. Good work on the 40s carbs, they woke up my motor, what a difference, Rick asked my motor specifications for adjustments and parts on my carbs, very happy with his work that I sent him another pair 44s. Did not need to buy reproduction carbs. Rick told me call me if you need help adjusting the carbs and, I did he walked me through it, very patiently. Guy is very knowledgeable, but does not show it or acted. Highly recommend him. Thanks again.

I had Rick do 44 idf for me recently...one that had been frozen up from water sitting in it. after talking to him briefly, i was sure he was the guy i needed to send it to. Once he got it he let me know, and once again called me once it was torn down and estimated. I gave him some engine info, and he got me a nice baseline set up on jetting. The pictures he sent were amazing, and the carb looked like new. It looked even better in person once i got it back. It truly looks brand new! i am so stoked, and will be getting it on my buddys car soon. i would recommend that anyone needing carb service to get ahold of Rick and talk to him, once you do, you will understand. He is also very fair priced, and get it done in a timely manner. i will be sending more to him in the future.

Rick rebuilt a set of 40mm Dellortos for me. He kept me updated the entire process and the turn around was very good...quicker than expected. The carbs ran great on first startup and they turned out great. I would recommend to anybody and will plan on doing business with him again. Thank you Rick for quality work.

Rick recently rebuilt my dual 40 Dellortos. He stayed in constant contact while completing the work and is a master of this craft. He answered all of my questions and provided jetting advice regarding my engine combo.

Below are pictures of my completed carbs...they speak for themselves. Once on the engine Iíll report back on how well they work

Rick did an outstanding job rebuilding my Dellorto 36 DRLAs. He does so much more than cleaning and slapping a rebuild kit in the carbs. He asks about them, how they've been performing, and any issues noticed. He's meticulous in his disassembly, taking notes of what he finds that may need attention. Communication during the rebuild is excellent, and often includes progress photos. Like many others, my carbs came back not only looking perfect, but balanced and adjusted so that all it took was bolting them on, priming, and the engine fired right over. From there check the side-to-side sync and idle mix, and drive on down the road. My car has been such a treat to start and drive since getting the carbs back from Rick.

If you need DRLA's or IDF's rebuilt you should look no further than Rick.

Let me start off by saying that Rick is a great guy who is willing to help u with all ur carb needs. He's knowledgeable, reasonable and very particular with cleaning the carbs. I bought two kits and rebuilt my 44 Webers, however they needed a deeper cleaning that I was not able to do. Rick cleaned these so well,I could eat off of them.
Handsdown this guy knows his s***. U won't be disappointed...

Had an issue with one carb I purchased from Rick, #3 cylinder wasnít firing. I checked everything and couldnít get it to work. He offered to fix it and send it back without charge. So I sent the one carb back, he found an issue and fixed it. Runs great.


Most people are great until something goes wrong. Rick was awesome the whole time! Highly recommend him.

I just wanted to take a quick moment to thank Rick for the amazing work he did to my Dellortos. These carburetors were in pretty rough shape before he did his magic. I truly wish more vendors would be at least half as good as Rick! He always kept in the loop and sent me plenty of pictures of his progress. Hope to get this bad boy going soon!

If you are on the fence for whatever reason, don't! he was an absolute pleasure to work with and if I ever need his services again I will not hesitate.

Bought some dellorto 45s from Rick. Very pleasant experience, great customer service, good communication, honest and the carbs look beautiful. Jetting seems darn close too!


Highly recommend purchasing from him. Very impressed. He was rebuilding the carbs when I saw his ad. He kept me informed and sent pics during the process.


Thanks!

Sent Rick my 45 DRLAs which I had been having trouble with for a while. After he replaced what needed to be replaced , cleaned everything, and set them up they work great. They were easier to set up and get to run properly. I am very happy I sent my carbs to Rick and would recommend him to anyone thinking they need a carb rebuild.

I had Rick rebuild a set of 40 DRLA's back in January. I warned him it would be a while before I was able to install them since I'm in Virginia and the car was back in NY with my father. I was home for a few days last week, and installed the carbs, and got the engine fired up. What a difference they made! I thought the car was running ok originally, but after Rick when through the carbs, it runs like a modern car. Started up and held an idle immediately out of the box, extremely easy to tune. I just had to balance them with a few quick adjustments to reach my desired idle RPM and adjust the linkage. Mixture screws were right on out of the box. I had one issue on install (which ended up being my own stupidity), and a quick call to Rick was quick to solve it. He was extremely helpful and willing to offer support even 6 months after the fact.
