The hitachi carb on my car has some issues (of course it does, it's a hitachi carb). How expensive and difficult is it to rebuild this carburetor?

Pretty easy. Box it up and send it to Kerry at Roobuilders. Find him via www.ccrengines.com.

Free plug :)

Your better off getting someone with more experience to do this for you, so if it stuff's up once installed again send it back =)
Work out cheaper in the long run..

I'll second ShawnW and Ruby's recommendation. I have a carb from CCR/Roobuilders on my wagon. It came with a diagram for all those hoses, and Kerry (a great guy) at the other end of the phone if there are any questions.

Ball park figure on what it would cost? May have mine done after the Weber's on the "82 so I can use it on the '86.......

I don't mean sending it off to have it rebuilt. Sorry if I wasn't clear. I want to buy a rebuild kit and do it myself with the assistance of one of my automotive professors at the university.

It's not too bad. I did one with the help of my father. The rebuild kit I got was from Beck Arnley and came with everything I needed. It basically replaces all the internals except the float. I think the only really hard part was setting the float.
