Might be a good time to get your carb rebuilt if you haven't done so recently.

I had my share of on-river fixes, but I got about 70 good hours out of it last summer! Didn't even think about the carb, I'll have to check that out while it's off too.

It's a never ending list of things to do. Should also consider replacing the rubber fuel line from the tank to the fuel pump if it hasn't been updated with ethanol resistant fuel line.

Did they use ethanol regularly in '88? Just curious, probably a good idea to replace it either way.
