hi guys im having a dilema about my carb on my 93 prostar 351, it needs a rebuild and im wondering if its better to buy a remanufactured carb and just bolt on or if its worth getting my old one rebuilt ?

any views would be appreciated.

Are you sure it's a 4160, if it is, a rebuild kit will be worth the time and or $ to have it done. It has a single fuel line connecting to the port side/front of the carb, a 4010 is the dual line that conntects to the starboard side of the carb, front and rear.
Here is a 4160,

I had a 4160 on my old (Supra) and it seemed as if I was rebuilding it every year ... I got fairly good at it. I sold that boat to a friend and he installed an aftermarket Edlebrock and loved ... stated it was smoother

Hi tmcno.1 , thanks for the pic , yip i have a 4160 for sure and ive tried to source a rebuild kit locally (im based in Ireland )but have had no luck so far, ive seen plenty available in the U.S. but there seems to be alot of variations in product codes and descriptions, you wouldnt happen to know what the part no. is etc ,

thanks Robert.

Ive been considering the Holley street series carb. Any of you guys have any luck with them. I know many say no auto carbs on boats.

We run them on all our muscle cars. Bolt on and go! Never had to adjust one to get it to run decent. Dads stroker motor needed jets and some tuning, but was personal preference.

do you have a really good fire extinguisher?

There is a reason these boats came with a marine carb on them and should be replaced with one or rebuilt with the proper kit and it's not because the Pentegon requires the Marine Corps to bolt them on top of their footlocker.
