'79 Sprint. (I was wrong about the '81 year). With apologies to Gerry for polluting his thread. Although at the rate he's going, he might be selling her soon! Seriously, I expect you'll have a wonderful season on the water. I think I speak for all of us when I say I'm looking forward to a few shots on the water.

:smilie_happy: Don't worry about polluting the thread! It is in the "way off topic" forum anyway.

Finally! Some pics in the water:

We need to clean, sand, stain and varnish the brightwork from the rails up, but it will be fun!

In the running video at the beginning of this thread, I was not happy with the drop off when the throttle was blipped. Further investigation shows that the engine stall if put to idle and has a hard time re-starting after running. Coils, plugs, condensor are all new plus correctly adjusted. Carb on the other hand, rust and dirt in the lines.

Well, it looks like I am rebuilding my first updraft carb! What a monster it is. :hihihi: Looks pretty simple. The carb kit is only $29 including all Viton rubber. Plus, it is only one carb! :yahoo: (BTW, does this put me into the Single Carb Club?) :smilie_happy:

I know next to nothing about boats, though I have been out on a few and owned a 25 foot with a cabin for awhile. Took it out on the ocean a couple times.
Looks like a fun project Gerry!

It is fun, but my knees are really having a hard time crawling around the engine area to pull the intake manifold and the carb. It is too bad too because the ride to Cape May is only 1 hour 15 minutes and it is a great bike trip, but my knees can't take it right now and I really don't want to drop the bike.

I see my Ortho Doc on Thursday and might get them drained again. The reality is, the arthritis isn't getting better with age. :smilie_happy:

I am working on the carb right now. WOW, I thought old Goldwing carbs were bad. There was 3/8" of muck/mud in the bottom of the float bowl. All jets in various stages of clogging. Thank goodness for the ultrasound machine, it is getting a workout! (See, bike tools work on boats too!)

I think SeaFoam was originally concocted for marine fuel systems. Might be a good future preventative maintenance item.

Have a soft spot for water and boats after owning a 30 foot Uniflite and living aboard a 40 foot Bayliner Bodega for 5 years. Hear you on the cramped quarters, one thing I never got used to. Enjoy the rebuild, it keeps the romance of the boat alive and I'm glad the Mrs is in the fray as well. Enjoy following your thread.

Cheers

Last June, I cleaned and rebuilt the Zenith updraft carb. Don't see cast iron, single barrel updraft carbs around much. It is a pain to get to. It is located under the intake manifold here:

Man! I will never complain again about working in tight spaces on my 1100! My arms are quite torn up getting to that carb. Fuel lines off first, then fuel pump, then the front valve cover (which, BTW, is under the intake manifold on the side of the engine) and finally the intake manifold with carb attached.

Here is the poor old thing resting comfortably on my work table:
