Save your kit and leave well enough alone. I'd not trash out a one year old carb just to replace gaskets. It should go 10 years without issues (under normal use). Best think I can think of is to treat it with non-ethanol fuel for a long time.... It's not like you're building a drag boat here...just a solid performer with reliability.

When you go to replace the manifold, upon disassembly of fuel line / carb, take an extra effort to loosen the carb mounting nuts first and (literally) lift the carb from the fuel line, and not remove the fuel line from the carb. Put it back together the same way (setting the carb down onto the fuel line).

Yeah I pretty much ordered the kit just to have on hand if needed. I run ethanol free fuel all the time in it. And drain the tank at end of season. Run the first few tanks of the season with seafoam. I am actually gonna redo the fuel line on the new engine cause the po had mangled the stock line. But that is solid advice! I agree on the drag boat.. just want a solid running reliable boat. IL leave the crazy **** to another one if my buddies. He is doing a turbo Honda v6 in a old sn.

That looks great! I looked at that manifold after you said something. I almost sprung for the black performer. Now if I could just track down some mastercraft power valve covers

Well got back in town yesterday. Called the shipping terminal to pick up engine and it's wasn't there! Called a few minutes later and said it is in Denver but was never transported to there terminal. So I am suppose to pick up tomorrow. I got started on the project though. Here are a few pics. Don't mind the mess.. first time I have EVER wore shoes in the boat, and my property has more sand then some people's beaches. Lol got the engine out and in the garage. Stripped down accessories and was going to start sandblasting and painting but my air compressor is having issues. Looks like I finally have a good reason to justify a new one to my wife!!
