Replaced my 1982 2.5L Mercruiser with a new 3.0L long block and now I think it is time to tackle the carburetor. I'm positive the carb is shot - mixture screws do nothing and i'm getting gas residue around the throttle.
The carb number is 17059054.
My question - i've found a few remanufactured carbs (i.e. Sierra 18-7609) on the internet - are these any good? I'd prefer to replace the carb rather than try to rebuild (summer is quickly passing me by) but I want to make sure that a re-manufactured is the way to go. Are these completely rebuilt to factory specs? Anything I should watch out for? Should I look at other brands and if so - where?
I'd appreciate any comments or suggestions.
