have a 89 190 with the 4160 carb, had some problems with a leak out of the forward diaphram and replaced that, returne the carb, adjusted the choke and have got it running (rough for a bit, I'm pulling her out of storage for about 3 years) I'm pretty sure I need to get it refreshed or rebuilt to get her running right but after deciding that i need a rebuild,
I've notice that there is gas at the gasket between the carb and intake, followed the gas and it looks like the trottle linkage also has some gas on it as well and it is coming from around the linkage and flowing back down the gasket to the rear of the boat.
CAn this be fixed? i've read a couple of comments that say if it is leaking here then it is better to by a new one? don't want to drop$450 on a new carb, but don't want to waste time and money if it is a goner.
Anybody dealt with this? any info appreciated.
A rebuild kit will do the 4160 justice. No need for a new carb at this point.
