Continental carbs

Post by Shippee123 » Sat Apr 20, 2013 6:06 pm

Does anyone know if there are any type of adapter manifolds to use a standard carb on an 0300a continental?

I have a ma3-spa, but needs accelerator pump. Was wondering about switching to a non aircraft style carb.

If you are having difficulty starting the engine , install a easy primer in your system and overhaul the existing carburetor. Or you can look for a 10-4895 or a 10-4895-1 carburetor. Is this just for ease of starting?

Haven't started the motor, carb needs an accelerator pump and packing for around it. Still in the building process on the boat and was looking for a way around pricey aircraft certified parts. Is there anywhere to get non certified aircraft parts,or an aftermarket version.

Thanks

Accy pump and packings are under $100 brand new. Probably one of the cheapest repairs you'll have if you own an Airboat. Cutting corners can make for long nights in the marsh.
