    Anyone know if there's a way to repair fuel control mixture valves? I have a 1967 Camaro with AIR system and discovered a vacuum leak on the original valve that required me to remove it - at the moment I've got it blocked off.

    Saw one on Ebay for $175 untested as a core, which seems to imply that someone out there rebuilds these things. Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    John

    Yeah, I understand I don't need it, but I'm trying to keep the car 100% stock - it's only original once, right? I read an article about deveining the smog pump when the mixture valve goes south, but I'm not sure how the mechanics of the mixture valve work as far as repairing it or the conditions under which I can leave it installed (and leaking).
