The key is to spend the time to identify your particular carburetor. Down to the last digit or number. The author will assume you know exactly which carburetor you have.
A few little things like the position of the float valve retaining clip or how useful a thin spatula is when reassembling the horn weren't very obvious but go a long way to making your life easier. "Reassemble in the reverse of disassembly" just doesn't cut it as far as I'm concerned.
This book does a great job explaining the function of the parts of the carb, which is a great tool to diagnose problems.
I bought this book, as well as the Haynes Rochester book just to cover my bases. If you want to try a rebuild, I'd recommend you have both books. There are some minor gaps in this book that Haynes will cover, and vice versa (for example, Haynes recommends Loc-Tite for throttle body screws, which can work loose and fall in the engine, Roe did not mention this potential issue). The Haynes book does a better job covering other Rochester carbs, including a side by side guide for rebuilding the DualJet and QuadraJet, though the side by side instructions can be confusing at times. Roe was better organized in this regard. The pictures in Roe are better, and the high quality paper makes it a little easier to read and handle as you work. If you are doing a QJet rebuild, Roe is your book
I was able to get through a QJet rebuild in a very measured, cautious six hours. The carb worked flawlessly the first time, thanks to this book.
For some other odds and ends carbs like the Monojet though, it mentions it briefly at best and doesn't bother cover tuning for stock applications much either.
So with that in mind, fix that title for ya!
