Is it true? My parts supplier mentioned it and I have heard it elsewhere.

The parts have the same value as always, the money is declining in value every day. In 1965 Holley jets were $0.22 each. In 1974 I bought an assortment of ball and roller bearings for a gear box for $50.00. In 1975 the same parts cost $150.00.

I think they want the little guys out of business. It hard to compete with a brand new QuickFuel Double Pumper for under $400.00 bucks and I have seen them at 375.00.

I don't need to compete with that market. I build higher end stuff, racing and higher quality street carbs, it just makes the costs go up. They will never compete with the one on one service. Quick Fuel had that, they are tossing it. Holley will mot mod any carb, only rework and calibrate stock, Quick Fuel can now only modify Quick Fuel carbs, no Holley. And that may end soon. Their business plans make no sense long term, someone else will just come up with replacement parts at a better price and they lose the business. Short term it will hurt us a little.

Be thankful. Someday, if you order a carburetor the choices will be Oak, Teak or Mahogany and you wll open the box to find some bits of wood and some whittling tools, like a model airplane or a Pinewood Derby car.
