For those that have purchased and installed a 4160, say from skidim, did you have to rejet?

I haven't read where anyone has, especially if they purchased the one with universal calibration. But, you can always call them to verify it is not required.

I recall reading about one person doing it, but this has been years ago. The only thing I ever touched on mine was the idle screw.

When you did the install did you use the hard line that ski dim offers?

That is for a PCM fuel pump. Skidim no longer offers a replacement fuel line for the 4160 to the fuel pump used on the indmar carb'd 351's. You either need to have your own line fabricated or use stainless braided hose.

Cool, I'll probably just bend my own then. Thanks.

I assume you are saying to use a hardline, just not this since it's the wrong application.

Does anyone know the size and type of fitting that goes into the new 4160? I want to chase down the hard line parts before the new carb gets here.

FWI - This part works prefect on my 92 Maristar 210 w/351 HO and the new 4160 from Ski Dim.


Who's got a link to choke adjustment for the 4160?

The fuel line may look perfect, but I hope it's not 1/4" like the one I got. That fuel line is sized for a PCM 351 with a different fitting on the fuel pump, so just to let you know.
Don't adjust the choke, it has a universal setting that should be right w/o touching it.

Hey Harold,

It looks like they are 3/8 to me and it screwed prefect to the fuel pump and the new carb. I compared it with the old one and it worked fine.


OK, I just test it at the lake tomorrow.

I don't know what to tell you, but it screwed right into my fuel pump and the new carb. There are no leaks.

Glad it worked for you! You should call skidim and tell them it worked. They might consider removing that caveat from their description.

What is the difference between a PCM pump and I guess I have an Indmar pump.
