    Default carb question

    would there be any problem with running a non-marine Q-jet 650 or a holly 750 ?

    Closed engine hatch or open engine?
    Coast Guard wants a vented/marine J-tube carb on a closed engine hatch AND a spark-arrestor Distributor. However not many actually check but...if something happens like a fire, insurance claims will be tough without the proper vented/marine carb.

    Other than what HD said, no. No other troubles to speak of. Just the fuel leakage all over the engine from a float overflow

    You can buy the J tubes and press them in with a box wrench. They run $15-$20 at carb shops.
