Carb rebuild kit?

Hi guys :)

I need a carb rebuild kit. Anyone know where I can get one from the UK or somewhere cheaper than Atkins in the us? Thanks :)

Well it's all rebuilt and lovely now apart from one thing I've noticed. I'm not sure if this is normal or not but if I leave the car for a couple of days I notice that the float bowls are empty. Should they hold fuel or is evaporation normal?

Thanks :)

I always let the pump run for about 15-20 secs (ignition on) to let the carb pressurise if she has been sat for more than 12hours, otherwise she takes 3/4 turns before starting. When you turn on ignition you should here the pump running under the rear seat.

I've always considered this perfectly normal on a carby car. I leave the ignition on until I hear the gurgle of the fuel going up the return line to the tank, then pull the choke, couple of pushes on the pedal and fires right up.
