My new-to-me '92 ProStar (Indmar 351, 285 HP) has Holley 9510, and I think it needs some serious work. Does anyone know anything about this particular carb? Is rebuilding it a good idea? Since it's 20+ years old, should it be replaced with something new/better?

9510? are you sure thats a marine carburetor. iirc the HO 351w had the 4010.

The carb reads "FIJL-9510-EA", followed by R50 483, then 2621.

My limited research shows that the OEM carb may have been a Holley 4010, which apparently was never a very good carb.

I suspect that some well-meaning dolt replaced the 4010 with the 9510, which was used on a lot of Ford trucks in the early 90's.

I found an thread on TT from 2006 that recommended going to a 4150 or 4160 Holley.

Am I on base so far?

Looks like you did your research correctly. A picture or two makes identification a snap. If this is the case, replacing with a marine 4160 is the answer. Assuming the carb that came with the boat is still functioning, at least it is worth something. Should be an easy craigslist sale. My boat came with an automotive carb as well. I picked up a used 4160 and rebuilt it.

I would call them and ask.

But according to holley it is a 4160

Please please do not buy a national carburetor, it will work ok for awhile then will crap out on you, just bite the bullet and buy a new unit.

My local boat mechanic says that the 9510 is the OEM carb for this particular boat. He also says that this particular carb is really screwed up, but he thinks he can put a kit in it and make it work.
The saga continues....

Not so sure about your carb, but in reference of to the question rebuilding or updating, I would take it to a good carb guy and ask questions and tell him what is up.

Have a 79 with a 4160 on a 351 that was acting up. Took to this guy, rebuild, o rings, gaskets, accelerator pump fix, needle valves and seats and set float level. Solved all of my issues and runs like it did when new with the added benefit of spending about 120 bucks.

I think your carb is a 4010. If you Google "F1JL-9510-EA" it comes up with some kits for the 4010. The one in F1JL might look like an I.

I'm no mechanic (especially carbs), but I'm a good Googler. :)

A picture is worth a thousand words. Just sayin'

Can you expound on this? Kyle and I both bought from them.

I have a 9510 Holley on mine as well. Runs OK but falters a little at idle and sometimes wants to die when I put it in gear. I have the idle up to 800 to keep it going but it sure doesn't feel like I'm getting 100% out of it. I've tweaked the fuel mixture too. I may jump over to the 4160. Price tag hurts a little. Anyone ever pick up a used one and have it professionally rebuilt or is that asking for problems?
