So you're O.K. with carburetors. You can adjust the floats, mixture, idle, choke, and all the other little things to rebuild a carb. But what about the fuel cut solenoid valve, micro switches, mixture control solenoid valve (19 pulses per second) and the bowl vent valve?

Well, I'm here to tell you, your Teamswift membership has got your back...

Using your FSM (Service Manual) you learn that those components are hooked up with Weather Pack connections. So...

you get one of these:

and then you take apart your carb as usual. After you get to this point:

you whip out your trusty tool...(see, I did one already!)
After 5 minutes or so, you should come up with something like this:

hopefully making a lot of carburetor parts on cars in junk yards still useful and making your day, as you don't have to solder any new connections.

So now, you can replace carb components just like the pros!!!

Happy wrenching...

Once you get the cars dialed-in (compression, leaks, bearings, alignment, brakes) swap in new rubber and glass, you've got something which should last for years!
