Rebuild kit on US ebay here:

Carburetor Rebuild Kit Float 1932 62 Chevrolet GMC Pontiac 216 235 261 B | eBay

But a lot cheaper here if you don't need the float.

Carburetor Rebuild Kit-Rochest-Classic Chevy Truck Parts

If you go for the classic parts kit, although they have online ordering, it doesn't seem to work for us "durn furriners" but I've found that phoning them with your credit card at hand has always done the trick.

BTW, before taking the carb to bits, it'd be worth checking that all the ignition components are good if you haven't already been through it-especially the points gap and coil, either can also give the symptoms you have.

Thanks guys for advise. I pulled carb apart last night and found accellorator pump stuck down. So replaced spring so it can return up wards. Just need to fitted to car tonight and test. Was thinking of changing coil. I have 2 spare flamethrower coils. 1x1.5ohm &1x3ohm. Electronic ignition is fitted so what coil would be best?? Cheers Steve.

If you have points replacement type (Pertronix etc.) electronic ignition use the 3 ohm coil. If you have a constant energy electronic ignition (Lumenition Performance ignition etc.) the 1.5 ohm coil would be the one to use.
