Definitely didn't change the previous setup. I did one wire at a time and marked the wire and cap. Could only be wrong if it was previously wrong.

Sounds like it is probably time to deal with the carb.

Not avoiding it, just don't have any experience with it. My experience with marine carbs has been with the 4160.

I wouldn't expect any problems with a carb other than a 4160. Resale could be the only issue. Holley carbs are easily tune-able.

You had mentioned switching to a Holley 4150 carb. I would suggest the 4160 as this is the standard carb for MC.

Trying to test the fuel pump now to make sure it's working properly. Does anyone know the capacity or measuremt I can take to verify its pumping the proper amount?

IIRC, mechanical fuel pumps are good for about 7psi and the flow rate is fairly low, too. Doesn't need to be high pressure or flow, since the accelerator pump is fed by the bowl and the incoming flow is controlled by the float. However, if you haven't checked the float for bouancy, do that- they often develop tiny holes and if this happens, it's no longer a 'float'.
