I am looking for the cheapest way to solve my carb troubles on an '85 s15 Jimmy. It's ugly and I got it fer a real good price but the previous owner has the carb totally rigged. The thing runs like crap and gets totally lousy mileage(surprise surprise).

A replacement carb is $280 at the auto parts store. Is that as cheap as it gets?

I doubt a junkyard is gonna have any of these things laying around anymore. Not one worth buying anyhow.

Any suggestions???

**** that sounds like a steal to me...i paid like 400 for a carb from o' reilleys. i wasnt lookin for anything performance, though. i had tried lookin in junkyards too and i couldnt ever find anything that was a direct swap. most were slightly different that what origionally was on my 85.
