Just noticed where you are, too. I'm just North of Stafford so not a million miles away.

If you wanted to pop down and try your set against mine (ooh err), you're welcome.

Cheers Simon, I have spoken to Bill Highams, they have some in but will only sell the whole set,

Uncle al, not really interested in a 90hp upgrade.

Oracle, I have PM'd you.

I just thought I would tell you in case a set of 90hp carbs were easier to get hold of.When you get your carbs sorted out and set them up, set the idle air mixture screw to one and a half turns out from lightly seated, the manual will say differant but I found over the years that was the best setting.

I may sound stupid here, but what does LIGHTLY SEATED mean?

Cheers

lightly seated means screw it in until you feel it just touching, if you just screw it in hard you damage the seating making it hdifficult to set the carb/s properly.

Speaking of carbs, not sure if this will fit, but I assume so.

Garage Clear out

Hi

you could always post them an outboard dealer to have a look at them for you to see if they can do anything. Not saying us as we get a fair few in but we would have a look if you are stuck.
