If you want run-of-the-mill and cheap, along with reliable and simple, buy a $10 or $20 Holley NH body, get the MTFCA carburetor book, and rebuild it yourself. I've done it, and you probably can too. It ain't brain surgery. All the parts are readily available.

Steve gives good advice. I'm sure no rocket scientist and that's how I did mine.

Steve is right again. The NH isn't that hard at all to rebuild if your mechanically inclined. They are pretty basic once you get into them.

But, if you need one done, ready to bolt on for a reasonable amount, I got one from Tom Strickling ( strickstuff AT yahoo.com ). And he had good support when I had some minor issues--as well as this site.

Dan, ditto the above. Also try to find one with a tight throttle shaft. I've bought several over the years in Steve's price range with sloppy shaft bores which I had to drill and rebush to make them run well. Not a big deal if you have the skills and tools to do the job. But not necessary if you can find the right core. Just a thought.

There is a lot of info on here about rebuilding them, just search NH. The biggest things are to really clean all the passages. I drill out the plugs and then thread the stop holes 8/32 and put little allen set screws in them. Lots easier than trying to get the brass plugs to hold. Just a standard rebuild is pretty easy, remember a million or two were cleaned and rebuilt by the side of the road or in a kerosene lamp lit shop with virtually no tools. A gasket set is about two bucks, a needle and seat is about 12 and if the float is good that's about all you really have to have if the throttle shaft is OK.

If you need to bush a throttle or choke shaft, you can get brass tubing from a hobby store. A handy trick I learned from Stan is to clean the passages with a guitar string, one of the lower ones that's wound with bronze. That's rough enough to dislodge the dirt but soft enough not to damage the body.
