Buy the rebuild kit and find a good mechanic nearby. Labor should run right around $200.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

I know, it's just strange that their prices are so far off for two different inquiries......

I asked for clarification this morning. See below......


$249.00 puts a kit in it and does not even clean up the outside
$299.00 builds it and re colors it but does not re plate the linkage both of these have a 90 day warranty
$426.00 is the resto with a year warranty
Thanks

You can get one from national carbs.
Some folks don't seem to like them, because they're not all original, and so a renew kit won't work on it down the road...

But I bought one from them last summer. Bolted it on and it just worked.

I see they are $220 now -- mine was maybe $150 back then.
With having to send National Carb back their pos carb 2 times, I would not buy from again. It would have been much less painful and less time consuming to have paid double for a new one.

That's even cheaper than your per minute phone sex charges!

Odd how folks give you the least info they can. They never mentioned the premium rebuild to me, but at that point, I'd but a new one and forgo the 6 week wait.

Thanks for the additional info. Interesting to know for future reference.

Very thoughtful of you to post.

I asked earlier if the 4150s were used on Chevys, but I may have answered my own question. Seems like they were pretty popular on Fords over the years. I know in the late 90s, Indmar was using them on 350s on their engines in competing brands that still offered a carbureted solution. My brother in law has one in his boat (OEM application). And when he's not abusing it through non-use, it runs pretty reliably and strong.
