Thread: Where can I get a new marine carburetor

  1. #1

    Default Where can I get a new marine carburetor

    I need my carburetor either rebuilt or to buy a new one. Where can I get a new one if I wanted to tomorrow? I'm pretty sure the accellorator pump is gone and it backfires when I throttle it. It could be other things I suppose, but a boat mechanic went through it with me today and he confirmed what I pretty much suspected for a while now. It's a holly carburetor on a redline 460.
    Hike faster. I hear banjo music.

    Default Boat Carbs

    I haven't had a carbureator on a boat for a while now but the last time I needed one, Auto Electric out on Post Road had some in stock. You might try them.

    Could rebuild that one ,if it is a 4160 they not that hard to take apart, Get a kit give it a shot, You can always buy a new one later if that doesn,t work, About every 4-5yrs Id have to go though mine on my old boat,

    Default Make sure of the right type.

    Be sure to buy a marine carb and not just one for a vehicle. It is a Coast Guard reg plus your life can depend upon it, A marine carb has a backfire check ball on the fuel side. If it has backfired before than likely that little ball has been blown out cause the carb to pump through and load up the engine. I always used a guy across of the musk ox farm in Palmer. His business name is "Carb Specialist" or something like that.

    Thumbs up Carburetion Specialties

    I have known Dale Snelson across from the Musk OX farm for many years. I have not talked to him for quite some time. Last time I saw him he was fighting prostate cancer big time. He said he had retired, but he could not resist going through my Holly for me. Not sure what his status is now, but he is the best carb guy bar none!!! If he is still working he will fix you up better than anyone else at a better price. It don't get no better. Good luck.

    Hopefully you can find one or fix it locally. I never cared for the Holley's they just seem to be moody always. I have changed a bunch of the Holley's to the Eldebrock Marine Carbs with great success. Just ensure that you get the full rejet kit to tune it to your engine. These carbs usually considerably cheaper in cost and don't suffer from the Holley accelator pump issue. They are also available from Schucks or online.

    Here is a link for the Eldebrocks and Holley Marine carbs
