    Default Idle Question

    Hey Greg...I just bought that black Eliminator sprint from Mouzer over the weekend. He was saying that you did the work on the boat about 8 years ago. I love the boat. Always wanted a Sprint. Maybe you can help me out a bit. He just had those two Holley 750's built and put on the boat. He said it ran perfect accept it didn't want to idle. He said it seemed like it flooded out. We fired it it up on the trailer and it idled just for a minute. I guess his carb guy said that the carbs should be fine and shouldn't have to mess with them. Any suggestions?

    Thanks
    Sean

    When ever you install carbs on an engine it's just like sttarting over you need to dial them in on the boat. You can rebuild them on the bench but fine tunning is done on the engine in the boat. Float levels and air adjustments need to be done on the engine while running in the boat.
