Speedo accuracy is within a MPH or two as verified via GPS. Tach accuracy has not been verified. I suspect perfect pass is pretty close though, since its redlining at 4500 or so with the stock prop...

The secondary is definitely opening. You can feel and hear it open right over 3K RPM. Im still unsure about the RPM. Perfect pass is telling me that we're running at 4400 or better RPM at WOT, but...

Check your transmission fluid. If it looks good, but is just a pinch low, it just might need a few ounces of fluid. My boat will do the same when Im fully sacked out and I manhandle it out of a...

Ill bet the tach is off quite a bit. On my 92 prostar, there is an adjustment on the back of the tack that was hidden by the bracket that holds it in. I tweaked it till it matched what my perfect...

While I didnt have my GPS on the last time we were out, I have dialed in the speedo and perfect pass in the past. Its within a couple MPH. But good advice none the less.

Yeah, I tend to agree. The problem is that my tach only reads 3800 while my perfect pass reads 4400. I tend to believe the perfect pass, but after having an RPM adapter go bad on me, im not sure...

well, the timing marks are on the outer ring of the damper, right? If its starting to delaminate, perhaps the timing marks are no longer accurate. Only way to verify would be to locate TDC manually.

Thanks for the link, I had already come across it a little earlier. Due to the weather I had been checking the motor at 2.5K RPM in neutral as rather than under load. It was just way too choppy to...

So your sating that I should see closer to a 20 degree difference between idle and 3000 rpm? Idle should be 10, and 3K should be 30?

Also, running 16 degrees of timing is probably a lot more...

As it turns out, the rust I mentioned was grossly over exaggerated. There was barely any surface rust, and everything was moving freely. The springs and weight pivot bushings were all rust free. I...

This past weekend I decided to start playing with the timing. Before making any changes, the timing was set to 9* or 10* BTDC, and went up to about 18* above 2500 RPM.

I think it might be only 2 wires. The red wire goes to the battery, and the purple is the exciter wire, which i believe goes to the ignition coil. The ground (missing third wire) is likely left...

Im chasing the same problem in a similar boat (92 205 HO). Turning about 4300 RPM on perfect pass (only 3700 on tach) at about 36 or 37 MPH.

You said you didn't see or feel any problems with the...

I should also state that the rebuild kit I used was the Holley 703-47 kit, which lists carb number R80319-1, which I believe is the preferred marine 4160 model. I would assume that the power valve...
