Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old threads should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old thread.

5. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • Gale Carb Rebuild Help...

    Just got my rebuild kit in for my 1960 Gale 25hp outboard. The motor uses OMC parts as most of you know, and takes carb pepair kit #439075. This carb and kit is used any many other models, one being the 1975 Johhson 40HP.

    Was expecting it to come with diagrams and instructions since my dad's 06 Johnson 25hp did when he rebuilt his carb, but it did not. Was hoping someone could point me in the direction of the step by steps of the procedure and diagrams for this. If any of you have this information and wouldnt mind to email it to me I would very much appreciate it! Thanks in advance guys!

      It probably would be a good idea to pick up a shop manual. If you're quite mechanically inclined, then a Seloc would be good enough. Get the Volume I if you do. If you are a rookie mechanic, then get the certified factory manual (which costs twice as much as the Seloc)

      You'll find that those carbs are easier to rebuild than removing them from the manifold. It's just the matter of getting them cleaned thoroughly and re-assembling the packings on the needle jets correctly. If you're neat and meticulous, you'll do just fine.
