Many of you know that I service carburetors and manifolds exclusively.
The appearance upon my benches of carbs boogered with stamps of much more valuable models has increased dramatically over the last few years.
An example would be a $250 DLX112 converted to $2500 DLX113, inspite of the irrepairably larger idle bleed holes.
Sometimes the model of casting isn't even correct.
The question becomes:
Should I aggravate a customer by refusing to service the unit, or should I let it go back out to pervert history, and someday shame my reputation?
What happens when another good customer acquires the carb, and I must explain that he had been suckered by my attached invoice?
Refusing motors with bogus stamps was easy:
The State audits me.
Professional opinions would be appreciated,
