I only use Valvoline VR-1 40W in mine. It has the additives that the engine needs (ZDDP) as told to me by several on this site.

Where are you in the south east?

I think there is a good dealer there but you can also drive just across the state line to Rambo Marine if you ever have any problems...they are good people.

Unusually blue color, I like it! Engine looks identical to my '88 and the Folks on this board know it inside out, so if you have any questions, ask away. Good luck with what looks like a great find.

Update - I took the boat out for Father's Day.. She ran good. I did notice kind of a ''slight'' hesitation in it.. I pulled a couple of the plugs and they looked okay.. so i'm wondering if i should check out the fuel filters...

Does anybody know how many or know where they are located? It has a water separator on it, does that act as one of them? One of the carb? What about a screen on or inside the gas tank? I have never worked on one of these boats before.. LOL

Also the wheel base on the inside of my trailer doesn't have any carpet on the inside of it.. It's kinda shaped like a half moon... I wonder if i could just cut some carpet and make it that shape and use some glue to hold it on... or would i haft to use a board too?

Any help is appreciated

Does it have a Holley 4160? or a 4010?

I'm sure there are some carb experts on here, but with engine off if you look down the primary bores and move the throttle you should see it squirt a pretty strong stream of gas down into the bores. If not, your carb may need a new accelerator pump (or complete rebuild)

Most of these boats will run like new with a new carb or at least a rebuild. Also do you still have points in your distributor? There are breakerless ignition systems available for these.

The 4010 has dual fuel inlets on the side of the carb. The 4160 has a single fuel inlet in the front. From what I can see in your pix, it looks exactly like mine, which is to say a 4160. No expert here, but the list no. should also be stamped into the upper portion of the carb. body somewhere. Holly website has a ton of info as well, and you can look up the list no.
