220 gpu Carb

Post by flcracker6 »

Need some help. I have a 220 with the factory carb. zenith I believe. This motor runs strong but, it has sat for a while a doesn't want to idle. Anyone have a recommendation for a mechanic in the Highlands Polk area? Or an idea for a simple fix?

auto fuel really, really, gums up carbs that are exposed to the sun. clean carb and check the fuel lines. in future run RV fuel. helps some. LL100 also better.

Thank you, this boat has never had anything but av gas. It went on the boat from the crate after a rebuild from the company in Texas.

I have the same problem right now also. I found a company named Ducarra Aviation (ducarraaviation.com) they have all the parts you will need for a 220 GPU. I guess I'll be ordering my carb kit and some other stuff from them this week unless I find someone close to where I live to buy the parts.

Get a Holley 500. Way better than the zenith
