Carbs. need to be rebuilt, where should I go?

9 posts in this topic

I have a 1991 40 hp evinrude tiller and I need the carbs rebuilt.I live in the north metro so if I can find a place up in this area that would be great.However I want it done correctly the first time,so if it means driving a little distance it would be worth it.Any recomondations on where to go and a ball park figure on how much I can expect to pay? Thanks in advance!!

There is not much to them. I needed them rebuilt on my 1999 50 hp Merc. 3 cylinder so 3 carbs. Well I did it myself and can't believe how easy it was. Just do one at a time and you can't go wrong. I just took them apart and cleaned them with carb cleaner and blew the ports out with air. Did not even need any parts, but you might. Then it still idled rough so I got a kit for my fuel pump. It was also a simple fix and that was most of my problem. Runs great now and I saved a lot of money.

There is a boat repair bus next to the freeway )94 west) in Albertville, I have had them do a few things for me and was impressed with the quality and price, in fact I brought something in, a problem and they told me to fix it myself, very easy to do and they ordered the parts, took me 5 minutes to fix so I saved alot on labor, nice people to work with

Robbinsdale Marine does a great job. It's a tiny shop that does all kinds of small motor repair. They'll even work on motors back to the 50s I believe (which is kind of rare). I've had them do work on my '63 Johnson, my '72 Johnson, and my '79 Evinrude and have felt that they are honest, fast, and do a good job for a good price.

Thanks for all the input! I have heard good things about Hannay's Marine. I think I'll bring my boat in there to have it serviced. Besides it is close to where I work,so it won't be out of the way to drop it off. Thanks again guys!

    • ouch, I would think all would good now, but one never knows.  life is good today is all i know.
    • 33 pounds. nice looking unit but kinda heavy. nice price out there.

    • Holiday Bowl isn't too shabby. I wonder if Tracy Claeys is nervous? Last time the gophers played a Mike Leach led team, it cost their coach his job 
    • I'm not in the market for a new auger since purchasing an Ion, but I see FF has a Redback electric auger in their ad. This auger looks similar to the Ion for significantly less money. Does anyone have experience with this auger? Just wanted to bring it up as a possible alternative to those who might be in the  market for an electric. As a side note, I am very happy with the Ion.
    • MLR, how heavy is your house?   After reading your experience I was getting worried. Earlier this summer I swapped out my handles with bolts and gave them a brief trial with my old cordless Dewalt. It was pretty much maxed out and likely not the ticket. Just purchased the Dewalt kit DCK283D2 that is 40% off at FF in hopes it might work. I figured the impact driver would work but didn't really want to be hammering on the gear set. Tried out the drill after work today on low speed and it raises my house easily. My house weighs approximately 3000#. No more hand cranking for me.   Wanted to get the Milwaukee Fuel but couldn't see spending $275 for one drill. This kit is $167 for drill and driver with 2 batteries and charger.
    • I was talking about the heat from the heat exchanger making the fan hot.  With the fan at the top it blows the hot air out the bottom of the heater to help heat the floor.
