Carb

Postby Racerjoe » Sat Aug 20, 2011 11:26 pm



Can anyone tell me if the Carbs are interchangble from 88 - 00? If not do you know which will be a direct bolt on for a 91 model? I see them listed on EBay noting these years but it seems like a long run without changes. I have seen a few on there so cheap I was thinking of swapping it out to see it that fixes the hesitation/bog in 1st and 2nd on my 91 model.

I did this on a Mercury 150 a few years ago and it has run perfect since the day I bolted 3 carbs on it. I kept chasing a problem that ended up being a warped plated that was letting air leak in......

The rebuild kit is for 88-91 so they should be the same. Also know someone with 95 carbs on an 88 model.

Does anyone have any more up to date info on swapping the carbs on an 88 to a 95? It looks as though there is less vacuum on the newer model.

It's real Pita to swap carbs with a different vacuum line set up..it's been done but not easy to figure out.

The carbs physically look alike but all lines are not routed exactly the same. Could just as easily have same symptom after swap. Have you tried Seafoam with fuel.
