    Those carbs are fairly simple. Just use good quality kits. From Volvo Penta, the parts come in two kits. One is a gasket kit(856470), the other repair kit(856472) has all the "hard" parts. Get them synched well or it will idle like junk. also... the idle is a little higher than most engines, I think 800-900 RPMsIf your local dealer won't help with the parts, email me...
