Default New casting question

Who is a safe casting company to send a carb. to for remanufacturing? I have to borrow the carb. from a friend to have one made for my Dad? What are the general prices you folks have paid for castings in the past?
Thanks
Tom

Things like rocker arms and brackets can be cast from the old part. A carburetor will require a core unless it's simple enough that the inside can be drilled out. I think you're looking at an expensive reproduction.

Hey Roland,

Make sure you tell him to advise the individual that would be making this casting to not cut the original mixer in half and the send the new castings back in halves along with the original. Never did know who did the job!

Surely you remember making the patterns to remedy that situation!

Now quit laughing!....Helen

Need a rocker arm mount and carb. for a 4hp FM Model T. Trying to find it for dad, he's been looking for a couple of years with no success. I know of one I may be able to borrow to cast the parts. Any help would be apreciated.
Thanks
Tom
