Com'on now, your carb's 2 years old and you think it needs to be rebushed???

If your carb is really only 2 years old it doesn't need this; if that is a 
typo then okay.

RIMCO is is Santa Ana, CA.  Pick up a VW magazine and look for their ad.  
They have an 800 number.  I think they expect you to disassemble the carb 
and they will do their work; they are an automotive machine shop 
specializing in VW engine work.  I like them for case work and some of the 
other little bits they can do.  I prefer Gene Berg for work on cranks, rods, 
heads, etc.
