Hi there,

I have a 351 ford Indmar Engine. It currently has the 4010 carb on it (Redhedded stepchild).

I saw this one and you notice the fuel inlet at 45 degrees. Will this work on my engine??

Do I need to modify the hose from the fuel pump to the carb??

The carb Part #: 0-75009-2, description Carburetor, Model 4160 Marine, 600 cfm, Square Bore, Electric Choke, Single Inlet, Dichromate,

You will ned a new fuel line from your dealer if they know anything about the older motors or skidim.com where I got one from

You will probably end up with a braided fuel line unless you have one specially made for you.

Making your own rigid fuel line is actually very easy (and cheap). All you need is some 3/8" brake line, a tubing bender, and a double flare tool. The line comes with both fittings you need, and should only cost ~$5. Autozone can rent you the tools for free.

Is there a problem with a braided fuel line?

Other than the pricetag, nope!

Could I use the fittings that are on the 4010 now or will I need different fittings??

It's a different line, as the 4010 splits on the starboard side of the carb.
Go ahead and get a S/S line from a Speed Shop, Street Rod Shop or if you know a local racer for around $50.
I bought a S/S OEM solid line and had it polished and it came up 1/4" short and was unusable and I spent over $40 for all that, so here is ours,

If youre talking about bending your own out of 3/8" brake line, it will come with both fittings you need.

It's a XXXXL Adult Pamper! Our baby deserves nothing less!
Just a sheet I keep over it to keep the dust off during the off season. If the engine cover is down, some fumes will build up inside and I just don't trust that!

Plus the can top on your oil fill cover and your brake fluid cover... not to mention the GPS mount you just built!

Trailers do! I have one of the largest, heaviest can cozzies in existance, as some people think there is a whole soft drink in the hole, go figure!:rolleyes: :D
I refer to it as my "Pop Top" brake fluid reservoir cap!
The same thing is on the van radiator cap and a Coke can on the A/C dryer cannister! I know, I ain't right!
