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!

    • We can only hope to catch a bigger party crappie than him! 
    •   I never followed the Farve story, so don't know the details.  If I had to guess, it would be similar to Rush's.. Rush's story was more interesting to me because he is such a complete hypocrite on the issue.   Arizona hasn't legalized weed, but they are taking on the prescription drug problem, which is the root of the hard drug problem.  (You know, the part you and the feds refuse to acknowledge.)  I suggest you view the "RX to Addiction" video I posted earlier, and the link above to see what steps they are taking.    The feds actually act as an enabler for hard drug addiction.   If you have done your homework at all, you should know this.     Pointing out the double standard for enforcement of drug laws is part of the answer, which again, you refuse to acknowledge.          
    • How come you aren't talking about Bret Farve? Same as Rush, didn't go to jail either.   Are you aware of any cases of people going to jail for this behavior?   They don't seem to make the news.     AZ way behind, several states already have legalized recreational weed.   It is coming nation wide.     For me, the real question is what are sometimes called "hard drugs".   Heroin, Cocaine, Meth being the big three with a whole bunch of others like fetanyl etc.    Making them legal and sold otc like recreational marijuana seems to me like it would be a bad idea, although there are folks that seem to think otherwise.   And they are part of the "war on drugs"     So, I keep asking the folks here who are saying "end the war on drugs" what that means.     So far, not much for concrete answers.   Fingerpointing at affluent pill addicts that get treatment, or those that die, is not an answer.     

    • Of course they are Nick, that is what they do. The sad part is you only think one party is capable of this, your not nearly as dense as JV so you should be picking up on these things by now. Just because one party is less evil in your eyes doesn't mean you shouldn't see through their negative contributions to this country.

    • Hardly, I'm advocating we had the worst two choices in the history of America that I am aware of. Well done two party system, you make yourself less relevant by the day.

    • Ha ya I didn't realize he was that bad. I haven't heard anything relating to protecting players at the trade deadline CM so hopefully that is bunk. I suspect Chuck waits until the prices come down and picks up someone for cheap that will be just a filler, these guys are going for pretty high prices right now.

    • Isn't this up your ally Del? He probably has some success but it would depend on the "patient". Many people have probably healed themselves through the placebo of religious beliefs. If it works it works, who am I to argue if they are getting results but I will admit I doubt anything works across the board for everyone, we already proved that with modern medicine. 
    •       But Trump is going to make America Great Again, so he should be more open with his press briefings, even if it means some of the reporters aren't always friendly.
