A good carb rebuilder should be able to easily sleeve the accelerator pump bore, so why not just go ahead and do it? But if for whatever reason you don't want to take that route, the major Packard vendors offer correct rebuilt carburetors though you may have to pay an extra fee for not being able to supply a satisfactory return unit.

A little frustration from time to time is part and parcel of the hobby, stay patient!

so far two recommended carb shops said re sleeving not an option. any 643SA carters available out there? even a beat up one. the pump well may be in better shape than mine. thanks

Have you spoken with Daytona Parts in Florida?

Kanter and Max no longer have them in stock?

How about Bob's Packard Parts in Marietta, PA?

Daytona said not applicable and max said no go. looking for a carb to fit now or an old one with a good pump bore

I checked with Kanter Auto Parts for you and yes, the have a rebuilt in stock. They require a rebuildable core in exchange so I've asked Fred for you if a core with a accelerator pump bore needing sleeving would be an acceptable core, awaiting his response.

PS- Sorry to advise, but Fred Kanter advises that a core requiring sleeving is NOT an acceptable core.
