Lonnie, the carburator guru, worked on my Datsun's Weber replacement carburator after another shop screwed up the installation. Lonnie had to redo everything that the other mechanics had screwed up. It took awhile to get the truck back but that was because Lonnie won't let anything go out of the shop until it's perfect. The truck was rejetted several times and retuned until it ran like a Swiss watch. It has no problems passing smog in Nevada and I got over 30 mpg on a recent 500 mile round trip. Lonnie is a dying breed of mechanic, the perfectionist who stands by his work, charges a reasonable fee, and won't let a vehicle go out of his shop until it runs as well as his own car. I hope he lives forever.
