School us on what a trollhole carb is.... He takes a Chinese carb and dials it in and also he has the knowledge and connections to get the right one in the first place? I am running a 64 buck ebay chinese carb and once in a while the float sticks and it's just plain bad, but the rest of the time it idles like a Swiss watch and pulls like a tractor. LIke the original poster asks, I wanna know what to do. I have 2 FJ 60 carbs and a 1977 carb, I'm gonna guess send one to Jim C?

If you want to part with one of those 60 carbs I would be interested.

For these trollhole carbs or one from Jim do you have to do any tuning or are they plug and play?
It's a carburetor, not a chip. There is no plug and play carburetor.
Whether a new Trollhole or a Guru rebuild, you will be expected to attach linkage correctly and turn some screws to make it run correctly on your engine.
