    Default What kind of carb on BBC?

    Guys

    I am rebuilding a motor for a friend and now we are down to rebuilding the carb. I have two questions that are related:

    1. The motor is a 1980 Mercruiser 330 HP Stock BBC 454. I carb tag has been removed...I do know it's a Rochester spreadbore. Do you happen to know the CFM on this carb and or the correct rebuild kit number?

    2. He wants to keep his vintage 1980 Schiada as stock as possible, however, if I cant find the right rebuild kit, what might be a suitable Holly or Edlebrock carb that would be a close fit to the original Rochester?

    Thanks in advance!

    Just for your info. You can take that carb that you have to a NAPA store and they will send it off and have it rebuilt! And it will take the guess work out of it!

    Rochesters haven't had a tag in many years. The I.D.# is stamped vertically on the boss that the long secondary bolt goes thru on the (drivers side on a car) side, it faces foward. Take the carb to a boat shop that KNOWS boat stuff. The most FUBAR carbs that we get in here were worked on by car guys that don't know the differences of boat stuff. TIMINATOR
