I had one of those carburated Mariner 150s once, gawd it was a thirsty beast.

Looks like an awesome project.

Lol so the 200hp sitting in my garage will be even more thirsty then
In all honest I prefer the ease of build and self repair as opposed to paying crazy dealer prices when they go wrong,
That little extra bit of fuel is worth it to me
