    I just finished going through one of the members carburetors. It happened to be a Rochester 4 bbl, which is very common to the marine power world. If there is interest as to whats in there and the how, why and where, I am happy to post up pics and some description of the rebuild and mods that were done to get the unit squared away.

    2 of those those things are currently planning a hostile take over of my bank account.

    I've never rebuilt a carb but I have rebuilt/assembled a couple chevy 350s and a ford 302 in my time. I'd be interested to see a good tutorial for marine application. Last time my guy charged a little over $200 to do one.

    Well I'm not sure if you know this Frank but coolness is magnetic.


    Let me see if I can put this in terms you will understand. Back when you were in your 40s, I believe there was a group of entertainers called the "rat pack" It was made up of a bunch of cool guys like Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra. They got along because of their coolness.

    Hope this helps :D
