    Carb help Tampa Bay Area

    Hello all, new to the forum but been lurking around for a few weeks now gathering info. Ended up picking up a yami SUV for the wife, got it for $2500 with 70 hours on it. Ski has been sitting for a couple years had/has 115-120 compression on all 3. Was last ran in fresh water. After a day of scrubbing replacing cables and lubing took it out for a water test. Ski runs really good far as I can tell 54mph/GPS, how ever once you stop for 5-10 mins it s really hard to start, to the point of I ended up having to dump a little premix into the intake. Once it is started.....(regardless if it starts on its own or with a little fuel dumped in) I have to ease into the the throttle if you punch it, it stalls and is hard to start again. Compression is still good at this point. Once I "ease" it up to about 1/2 throttle it runs fine. Even from idle I can paunch it. Almost seems like some sort of loss of prime, but choking alone does not get the fuel delivered very well. How ever it can sit in the drive way all night long and start just fine.

    Sorry for the long first post wanted to include as much info as I could think of. Long story short I figure carbs/filter and tank cleaning is a good place to start. So I am looking for a known good shop In the Tampa area, I live in pinellas county. Not opposed to removing them and sending them out, but if adjustment is necc after rebuild/install, I would end up In a shop again. I don't have a good tach for these motors.

    Thanks again for the fast replies folks. Placed my carbs into Jim's hands less than 12 hours after this thread was Started. The greenhulk crowd is awesome, and so is Jim. Great price IMHO and he only lives 3 mins from me, so couldn't of worked out any better.
