Tom Bryant up here in Maine rebuilds and rebushes SU's for $130/pair. That 
includes all parts, new throttle shafts and some very trick bushings that 
he developed. He is primarily an old Volvo guy, but he will rebuild any SU. 
I can dig up his address if anyone is interested.

I am a VERY satisfied customer, he did my HS2's last spring. Given that the 
various parts alone are near $100 from the usual suspects, I think this 
counts as a bargain.
