      Ak grumpy,
      I tossed my Holly last year for the Edelbroch 800 cfm and am pleased with the results.

      How is she doing this morning?

          I didn't even try this morning. Had a couple otherthings I needed to do. Going to take it to someone tomorrow and see if he can figure it out. If not then I will look into other options, which could include of replacing the carb. Did Skip do the swap out for you?

            I really think your issue is water in the system. Remove carb, remove top and clean thourghly, a few drops in the bottom makes a difference. Be sure and check fuel tank again, a little water is easy to no drain out of it. Water does not mix with gas, water goes to the bottom and gets sucked up first. This is all easy stuff, just takes a little time, and will save you the expensive new carb. Water does not hurt a carb, just need to get rid of the water, be sure and double check fuel filter also.

              AKgrumpy,
              No, the swap is extremely EASY. Even I can understand how to adjust and keep this thing tuned up. Takes about 10 min. to swap out, videos on the web frem Edelbroch make it simple to adjust and understand.
              Cost was around $400- on-line.

                I'm Reading your posts and if you got questions fell free to call, sounds like your getting lots of help. Does your airboat have a raycor filter on it. If not its a good investment, You can look and see any water in the bottom of it and drain it out. If you have a filter check it and see it you have water in it drain it out and add heet in the red bottle and the will get you going unless you have a lot of water in your tank. If thats the case I would figure out away to get it drained. Call me if you got question. 907.322.3291

                  I had the exact same problem with the ocean boat. Tried everything new carb, drained the fuel tank and dried it for days, drained the fuel lines, added water separator, new fuel filters and finally found out it had a vacuum leak. Fixed that and no more problems. A little 2 dollar gasket cost hundreds before it was found and fixed.

                      Skip, imp, I changed out my raycor and put on a Yamaha fuel/water filter. I did pull it off on Tuesday and dumped it. There was a couple tablespoons of water in it. Filled the filter with Sea Foam and cranked the engine and let it run for an hour.. Runs great after I get it started, just won't start without help. Now it is raining non stop and no place inside to work on it.

                            That tell me you still have water in the fuel tank.

                            You have to get all the water out or you will continue to be plague with problems. Depending on the tank you may have to pull the tank or figure out a way to insure there is no water left.

                                Rebuilding the carb today. The water issue just showed us that there was already a carb issue. I knew of some of the carb issues but not all. I will know by this evening if this fixes the problem. And after the hour plus running earlier this week, I pulled the filter and no water in filter.
