Default 1963 340 HP Carter Carb service needed

I am in the Detroit area and in need of service to my original carb, only 22,000 original miles.
Runs great although I need to really feather the clutch and rev it up to get it moving or it will buck or stall?

I found a few places out of state that I can ship it to, looking for recommendations.

Might check with a local Corvette club for some leads.

I sent it to Carburators and More.
they did the rebuild and made the carburator suitable for todays oxigenated fuel, I hated to disturb the original look of the carburator but it needed to be cleaned and recoated.

I was given instruction to add a low presure holley fuel regulator 12-804 to keep the presure at 3lbs, how can I do this cleanly keeping the originality of a survivor car?

It starts and runs real nice now!

If you are worried about ethanol in the gas, what about all of the other susceptible Parts in the car such as the rubber lines, fuel pump diaphragm, and the sending unit in the tank?

What was the normal fuel pressure from the fuel pump before the carburetor overhaul?
