Cast iron Holley G carburetor, dual choke arm. Carburetor has been completely disassembled and cleaned. New spray needle, float and venturi. Reassembled and runs well but I had problems getting it to stop leaking. Had a new needle and seat but I lost the needle. I think the gasket was leaking between the seat and body. I had an old needle and got it to hold gas for a few hours before it would finally drip. I'm just going to give up on this one. You are a needle and seat and a paint job away from a good carburetor. Runs great other than the drip. $100 plus $8 shipping

Still for sale. Carburetor looks brass in the picture but it's cast iron.

Such a shame as the gasket between the bowl and body should not seal any gas leaks. Once the float is pushed up by the fuel, it should shut off. If it does not, then the needle is leaking. That is the problem. Most seats are reasonably good, but needles are very often rough and need smoothing..

It was the gasket between the needle seat and body leaking. I work on stuff on a desk in my living room and I guess a cat knocked the needle off and I vacuumed it up is all I can guess.
