Cheers Turbo,

Can you get them second hand? I doubt if our esteemed committee will wear new carbs type prices.

New boat is here, very happy!

Also forgot to say you would need to re prop it, probably by a couple of inches. E.G an MOD searider with a 75hp has a 18" stainless prop but th e 90hp runs a 20" stainless prop. Maybe worth thinking about that too. As far as second hand bits go.... Well maybe but we dont usually have the need to change them or have spare one's lying around but i will keep an eye open!!

TurboD is correct as I have done it for a customer, change carbs and change timing. As simple as that, except carbs arent cheap to buy new.
