I bought this '77 19' Dominator Jet boat. It has a Ford 460 engine in it and runs like crap. Well it doesn't run at all really. It starts for a couple seconds then dies. I'm determined its the carb. Where should I begin...the carb does not look like its stock. It has Holley stamped on the side but everything looks half-assed on it and I'm not sure if it belongs on it. I am not familiar with carbs very much and need help! I does still have points and I will take care of that soon. I just want to get it started and actually idling. So, what is my first step? What is the pressure regulator supposed to be setup at?
Here are the pics...any help is appreciated! Thanks!
