My. 02, just plunk down the money for a new marine carb.  If you can't rebuild it yourself then it should be about a wash on cost.

I agree with @oldjeep.  Rebuilding isnt that tough tho. Give it a try.

i'm in CT as well and sent mine to a guy who's well known on the MC site for doing rebuilds.  it was $199 for a rebuild which included shipping back to me, and he uses genuine holley kits for rebuilds.  he even made himself available via cell phone for multiple questions i had when putting it back on.  great guy.  email him (Peter) at [email protected]

Holley?  I thought most old Malibu/Merc marine carbs were Webers
