Willow valley is where it is, it is about a mile or so down river from the avi on the arizona side. We launch right off of the beach. We will be back out there on either wensday or thursday for the 4th. We will be staying in golden shores and be down on the beaches every day.

O.K. I know the area. Should be a house across the riv on the Cali side. 2 houses connected by a game room with private launch ramp below. That is a friend of mine.

Thanks Dave, I will change out the power valves as well as change out the needle and seat. Would like to do one at a tme just to try and isolate the problem just for future reference.
Traveling to Rialto tomorrow, may stop in at Eliminator to check out their inventory ;D

check your power valves and put in new metering block gaskets, dont over tighten bowls

Will a power valve that is bad be noticeable? What do I need to look for? Are the metering block gaskets similar or are they specific to each size of carb?

Thanks,  Just bought this boat. Trying to work through the last owners problems. I really think that the tanks need to be drained,,better fuel filter installed. Do you recommend a small inline filter between carb and fuel pump as well?

Looked like it was coming from from the side next to the squirters. I picked up two new 110 needle and seats and will try that. Fuel is just at the bottom of the site holes.

Hey All, New to your site. I have searched previous pages trying to answer my own question but no luck. I have a BBC with a Holley that left me stranded in Topock last week. Ran fine from AVI to the bridge then just died. Restarted and ran very rough. Looked down the carb to see mass amounts of fuel pouring in. Pulled the needle and seat tried to clean,reinstalled with same condition. Swapped primary and secondary needles and idled a little better. But trailered it out. Would the excessive fuel be caused by stuck needle or would it be from float level adjustment?  I swapped out the fuel filter also. The carb has two previous trips without problems. Could this just be dirt in the carb or a power valve. It did backfire once prior to this problem.

Thanks in advance. This site is very helpful.
