    Default Problem Solved.

    Those of you that where helping me with the stumbling thread i went out this weekend and since it was raining most of the day nobody was on the water and i got to stand on it for a bit. The stumbling continued.. Next day group of us went down to the sandbar and while i was there i decided to adjust the floats. What i ended up finding was that the primary bowl on one carb was adjusted way too low! The secondary on that same carb was pretty low also. On the other carb the secondary was perfect but the primary was a full turn too low. After setting them all to where they just bearly leaked out the bowls peep hole i ran the boat and i noticed that the boat felt stronger when stomping on it for a sec. That evening once all the ocean boats pulled out i went out for some runs and the stumbling no longer exists! Problem solved!

    knew you would get it Shaun. Some people just don't relize how important float level is. If your carbs are inline with the sec to the rear, you can raise the sec a little to help keep the jets covered, but just a little. The float level plays a huge part in how fast the carb jumps on the main jet. Good job

    Don't they make jet "extensions" for that reason?......Keeps the jets covered even during all those "G" forces.........MP

    they won't hurt, but if you are not having any stumbling problems between the time you nail it from a idle till the boat planes I wouldn't bother. If your carbs are mounted inline, are they vac sec. If so, I really wouldn't bother. You aren't even on the sec until after the boat rolls over

    Cant get them for side hung floats. Honestly I wouldnt worry about it. If you do, you need new float bowls lines and extensions. (4150 style)

    hallett is right, sorry for the wrong info, and if you put center hungs on, you will have to turn your carbs sideways, and then you won't need them any longer. You can't get center hung bowls to clear inline. If it doesn't stumble, don't worry about it. So just get back on the water and enjoy
