Holden EJ Carby Repair

Hello,

Im looking for an overhaul kit for a single stromberg carburettor to suit my holden ej. Ive recently had a problem with dirty/stale fuel going through and causing all sorts of dramas.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Caedon.

there are rebuild kits readily available..it's not a difficult job to remove clean and replace the parts..the kit should come with instructions and an exploded diagram..get some carby cleaner to clean everything when dismantled...if you don't have one - put an additional in line filter before or after the fuel pump..I've also found keeping a reasonable amount of fuel in the tank and not running too low reduces problems if you have crap in the tank

These carbs tend to suffer worn bushes in the lower base & a bush kit won't be provided in any kit.
Carby specialize can re-bush the throttle shaft in the lower.
Xtreme Fuel Systems in Campbelltown NSW have a very good reputation.

It might be worthwhile dropping the tank and cleaning it out. I had same problem with my wife’s Barracuda. I ran the engine until it ran outa fuel then had the carbie rebuilt by a reputable carb specialist. Reinstalled carbie, put new fuel in then fired her up.. same problem, running rough, hard to start. Took the carb back to rebuilders. As soon as he picked it up he could smell the old rotten fuel.
He said that the tank needed to be cleaned as I was contaminating the new fuel with what remained in the tank. Got the carb cleaned up again, dropped the tank and cleaned it up (and there was heaps of crud in there), blew out the fuel lines reinstalled everything and it’s run like a dream ever since.
