    That’s the beauty of them. Especially a 91/92 still with the carbed 351 Windsor. Great hull and you can always, always get parts for that motor. I updated mine from points to HEI a couple years ago after I got tired of messing around sanding points every year though. The rest of the boat is dead simple too with no medallion to cause dead gauges either.

    Still thinking about it.
    It took a year for the dealer to get it all together but I finally picked up my idea of an Alaskan river jet boat that fits my budget. Alweld 1448, Yamaha 25.

    This carb is killing me. Floats were never set so they would top out on the bowl before closing the needle. Accelerator pump linkage was seized along with the choke plate. This has been my first time messing with carbs and it sure has been a learning experience. Still won't run right. Had it sounding decent in neutral but once it gets a load on it it is super rich. Hoping to check timing this week and that that ends up being the issue.

    I know the feeling, my only experience with carbs on non small engines is on the 351. I have had issues with float height and leaking needles letting fuel drip out the boosters. To the point of just wanting to throw another 4160 on it and be done. The only unique parts are the j-vents that help keep fuel from sloshing out

    Finally taking this COVID project out for a test run Saturday. 1975 ThunderCraft Magnum 160. Bought it from the granddaughter of the original owner. It was their family boat for decades.
    The motor was rebuilt and runs like a top. Now we'll see if she floats. Cosmetically the boat looks good from a distance. Has its share of bumps up close. Nothing a little lipstick & rouge can't fix. I've stripped out the interior and am getting ready to put a new floor and seats inside. New battery & wiring. New lights, bearings, winch, dolly, wheels & tires on the trailer. I'm installing new cushions up front tomorrow. While it's off the trailer Saturday I replace the keel rollers on the trailer. I plan to repaint the trailer in July.

    Drove it to work today. Not sure if there is a more inefficient vehicle out there but it was fun. 20220624_064136.jpg

    Finally got this thing running and in the water. We took turns driving for an hour. Stopped on a beach for a picnic. Once we packed up, I couldn’t get it to turn over. I pulled the boat about 200 yards down shore and swam it another 100 to the dock & ramp with a rope tied around my waist.
    it was fun while it lasted. Sending it to the shop for a new ignition (I bent the key up pretty good) and a look over on the carbs.

    That three-cylinder Evinrude, in all its various iterations, is the best boat motor ever made. It's the Toyota Corolla of boat motors. I've had three of them and they are built like tanks. They'll get it fixed.

    I'd say the 115 hp Suzuki is the best boat motor ever made. I've had 2 over the last 17 years and they never need to be fixed!

    Yes, I too am impressed by the Suzuki outboard line, except for their low-density dealer network and the availability of parts. But if it never breaks down...

    A friend of mine was a dealer for years. It was running a little rough one year too I called him. He said, "Change the spark plugs, that's the only thing those motors ever need." He was right. lol
