are about the most economical as well as good. It has it all for a very fair price. I have a few of them as I have a lot of carbs and I do a fair amount of carbs for locals. Doing one now. Do you need the same kit for 6 or 7 carbs? Probably not. But getting one or two might not be a bad idea -- a couple of us stock parts as we do rebuilds.
IH Kits as long as they are genuine IH Kits are great. Some dealers though substitute other off brand kits instead. One dealer about an hour away from me uses Specter -- but I don't find them all that great at all. Individual carb parts in the kits - TM Tractor - Fuel

I have only seen one carb that really needed replacement - that was the vinegar special
Most of the IH 3/4" Updraft Carbs (Donaldson) are rebuildable. Even if they are warped, they can be straightened and fixed. If the carb inlet is stripped - helicoil, if the manifold stud threads are stripped - helicoils ... and of course a good soaking in Berryman's, wire wheel or soda blasting whichever you prefer and the carb can be brought back. It sounds like you have the skillsets .. should be easy. If you are deadset on a new one -- again, Steiner sells them but it will set you back next to 3 Benjamin's to get one.

The pictures are there, but you need Power Point or a Power Point Viewer to access the pics. Sorry about that, best I could do at the time. Also, that is the format that Carl did it in. If I had known how much of a PITA this would be for folks, I would have redid it in html. I think I am going to have to at some point. Microsoft Power Point Viewer 2007
or the IE View - Firefox Extension

Contact Bob McCarty and see ifn you can get a carb template from him. It would be more economical to make your own main carb body gaskets.pic: courtesy of Dale Finch - Using Bob McCarty's Carb Gasket Template
