Carburetor Kits

Marine Carburetor Kits

Many seasoned boat owners have found themselves with damaged carburetors due to the increased percentages of ethanol in the fuel they use. Turns out, it was not enough to just select fuel with a lower percentage of ethanol. Lower ethanol fuel deteriorates rapidly, so in a matter of weeks, too much “gunk” builds up in the carbs, beyond what spray cleaners can remove. At that point, the only solution is to rebuild the carburetor.  This does not have to be an expensive repair to be handed off to a marine technician, however. With a little organization, and a couple of hours, most DIYers can remedy this problem, and rebuild a small outboard carburetor themselves.

Marine Carburetor Kits and Sound Advice

  • Make reassembly easier by taking cell phone photos at every step as you dismantle the carburetor. (Thank us later!)
  • Set aside pins, screws and clamps that you’ll reuse in a disposable paper bowl, so these will not be lost.
  • Work in a well-ventilated area. Fumes from the cleaning solution can be toxic.
  • Wear industrial-grade rubber gloves.
  • Be sure to test the reassembled carburetor before you set off on your next voyage.
  • To make carburetor rebuilds less frequent, use a quality fuel treatment such as Stabil.
