Removal of Carburetors - 120, 140 Models

The 120, 140 models are equipped with two 2-barrel carburetors. Each carburetor assembly consists of a throttle body and two main body and float chambers. The latter are made of a nonmetallic material. To prevent damage, observe special cleaning, torquing sequence, and torque specifications. The carburetors are only serviced as assemblies.
The carburetors are unique in that each main body may be removed individually for cleaning or service without disturbing the throttle body or linkage. If the engine is being disassembled, the carburetor assemblies may be removed.
Do not run engine at high speed on boat with air silencer removed. Powerhead damage may occur due to a lean running condition.
