    Doesn't really matter, they are all three the same. The #1 has two of the holes in the casting tapped for the throttle bracket. The holes are cast in all of them and can be tapped easily. I have spares so give me a shout and I can hook you up.

    O ok bill. I didnt take that close a look at it. I picked up a jet boat and water was in the carbs and corroded real bad. The set screw that holds the tab that secure the seat was rotted and is stuck in the carb. I am going to try and drill it out but i am not positive its going to do the job. When i get home from work i am going to give it a shot.

    I have spares and I have a complete set. Be careful drilling I had a guy send me some carbs that had been repaired by another shop and they were drilled through the housing there. These were really screwed up.

    Thats ugly for sure!

    Well if it cant be drilled i was considering tig welding the retainer. What are your thoughts on that? I have them cleaning in the ultrasonic right now. Hopefully it frees up the screw but i am not hopeful.

    This is the carb thats banged up the worst but they all pretty much look like this,

    I was looking to tig the retainer but my friend who is welder said he doesnt like the material so i decided to epoxy the seat retainer in.
