Thumbs up

Based on your throttle body , I don't think I would attempt to salvage that carb.

I can't imagine what the tiny passages inside the metering blocks must look like. I think you will be well justified in spending the bucks for a new one.

The brass parts all cleaned up nicely! Keep it up, and please keep posting photos -- I'm loving this thread.

Not sure if you answered the Powerslot question, but based upon the picture of the driveshaft and coupling, you have a Powerslot as the gear reduction sits a the back of the transmission and looking at your picture, that's what you have. My US Coast Guard sticker also says Powerslot on my boat and the red label riveted to the transmission should say something like Borg-Warner 1:1.52 or something like that (sorry, I've had about 6 hours of sleep all week and the standard trans says 1:1.

For $500 it's a deal - a lot of work ahead but a great deal!

the tail pipe covers cleaned up okay, the plastic is still a little rough but I think they will buff out to almost new with elbow grease and patience.
Just a suggestion, but instead of cleaning up the tailpipes you should throw some of these on there. I did!

Here is the entire thread on it.

Great progress pics. I will second the thought on starting over on the carb. If you are a carb guy like me, you might take on the challenge though.

Good news, a trailer has been found! The good and bad news is, it comes with another boat lol. But for $100 for everything I couldnt say no. Dual axel and galvanized. Will need to source a rear support that will allow the inboard setup but that shouldnt be too hard. patience has really paid off, as I was almost ready to shell out big bucks to have a trailer custom made here. Just to ship one from California was quoted around $1500, I dont understand why a trailer costs more than a truck to ship out but maybe its because it cannot move under its own power... This trailer has a blown out tire so for around $150 this has really made my day and project so much more exciting and way under budget now. Now what to do with this boat?? Can anyone tell the make and model, the seller has no idea what it is and I couldnt find any markings although I havnt looked closely yet. The hull seems to be in great shape minus the really ugly paint. Could be a fun project after the MC is done.

From what I can see, the trailer looks decent. Boat looks interesting too. Perhaps you can find someone to take it off your hands for $100 and you get a free trailer.

Hey guys, could use a little help right now sourcing a store bought crossmember for the trailer. The stern crossmember, I need a drop down one that will allow for the inboard setup. Is this something that can be bought aftermarket? or will I be getting out the torch? Bolt on would be better... Any links or help would be great, thanks guys. Will post pics asap

Should be simple to have that fabricated by someone with some welding skills.
