    You might want to inspect the needle. It might have some corrosion.

    The carbs were out of sync. I got it running again. I think my throttle cable is worn. It doesn't return enough to bring it back down to a decent idle.

    A bad fuel hose will create all kinds of problems. All this time I thought I was having electronic problems. Now this girl runs like a scalded ape.

    Look at the underside. She turned out to be a modified sled like what DogCavalry is building. Not by design, but by accident.

    There's one seat. Still have some bracing and varnishing to do but it works.

    That is the lower unit drain plugs. There's not a piece of shaved metal on them. This motor just gets better and better. The gear case is at 100%.

    It needs some more paint and varnish, but, other than that it's good!

    Thanks!

    It looks real good. A wrap for the bimini top is good insurance when trailering.

    I have one. The bimini never stays down unless it's at the house. I pull it with the bimini up.

    I always tow with it down and secured. I've seen bad things happen to open biminis on the highway.
