    this is interesting news to me. So does this mean that the TKS will start to send more fuel when its colder outside? Meaning if I am cruising in the evening when its cooler or ahdn on the water and temp drops, that my system could very well flood easier due to the TKS?

      no... it senses the temp of the engine, not the air.... in the morning when the engine is cold, it will richen the mixture, but after the engine warms up. It senses the engine.is warm and sets the mixture accordingly.....

      although i have seen a sensor go faulty and it would randomly dump a lot of fuel in every few minutes to the point where the engine would stall... than after a bit of cranking, it would start up and run fine for a few minutes... and flood out again.
      replaced the sensor and all was good....

        Centerline is correct. Like a choke the mixture is only richened when the engine is cold. A fuel injected eng8ne does the same thing by increasing the duration the injectors are open.

            Update:

            Do not have the TKS system, which sounds like a good thing. I tore apart the carb and rebuilt, which I now have a very smooth running motor at good idle. Going to set final adjustments to idle in water this weekend.

            Issue I was having turned out to be a bad float level and noticed it was dumping fuel into the carb after I shut the motor off.

            Happy boating season to you all, especially those who have lend their time to help!

                Hope it works out for you .

                Question ... you did shake the float, it did not have fuel in it ?

                  Chief,

                  I should have clarified better. Float needle was not seating and dumping fuel onto the ventures (i believe this to be the right part name). At that point when I noticed that is was just flooding constantly, I got the rebuild kit and completed the job. I also used the thicker base gasket after doing research on this carb to yield better idle results.
