Looking for advice: 40 DCOE

I have the opportunity to acquire a set of 40 DCOE Weber side draft carbs with the intakes. From the photo, it seems a little rough, but I'm sure it woud greatly benefit from a complete rebuild and polish them up to look good as new.

Is there anything I should be weary about or pay attention to when I check them out in person? Is there a good source for a rebuild kit? If I make the purchase, I'll definitely be picking up the weber carb book, as this would only be my second (and third) webers that I've rebuilt.

Take the tops off.

If the insides look like the outsides, keep looking.

They gum up, and by the time you get them working,

you're out more than new ones.

AND some of the old parts are NLA.

However, if the insides look good, then check for broken or missing

parts, and if they're complete and everything moves, you've probably

got something that'll make you happy.

There is almost nothing that needs 'rebuilding' on a DCOE-

the throttle shafts turn on bearings, and there is very little

rubber. So the $25 kit does the deal, and they DO last forever.

I like them.
