Anybody know how to work on carbs, on honda 75hp 4 stroke?

I believe they just need cleaning, maybe a little tweaking. My bottom carb is making a twitching sound, makes a puff type sound and blows a little puff of air out. Only happens in real low gear.

Don't really have the money to take it into the shop so if anyone wants some side work that knows what they're doing, send me a pm. I live in pcola

You are going to need someone with the right equipment to set up 4 stroke carbs or you will be in worse shape. If they don't have a vacu-mate then run away. Also Hondas are bad about cracking emulsion tubes and will need replacing.

Just my 2 cents.... your boat that is carrying you and your family out in water that changes from hour to hour may not be the best place to use a backyard mechanic. Outboard carbs are not like the old auto carbs. I have been rebuilding them since the mid 90's when I was Mercruiser certified, and I would not touch a Honda carb. I don't mean to offend anyone, but I see alot of people putting family and kids in danger on the water.

So what you are saying is, since my shop charges alot less then the dealership, then my work is inferior? I know alot of mechanics that do side work for a quarter of what a shop would charge, yet are just as qualified as a shop mechanic. Shoot some of them work for a full service shop during the day....

Sorry, but that kind of statement bugs the crap out of me cause it is not always true...

You should make sure the person knows what they are doing, yes, but just cause he is cheaper doesnt mean his work is inferior....

One of my first posts was about my shop, and asking people to give me a shot working on their machines..... I dont see it as shady, I see it as people trying to help others out, offering good prices, and trying to make it in todays economy. He said he has references....... someone can always check the references and see if he is knowledgable.
