    No need for the whole reed plate, just carbs and 50/60 reed retainers. From there you can have the flywheel lightened, a tuner made, intake/reed plate modified and port work.

    You sure it's a 52? But either way those aren't 60s. You would see some benefit going to a set of 60 carbs, preferably the 3301-824854c series ones. Put up a pic of the whole motor, might be a 59

    Put up some pics of it, I don't think the 52" was available as a 40 unless it was a jet, and if it was a jet motor it most likely has 60 carbs. Pics of carbs too, I should be able to tell what you...

    59ci Merc Carbs

    I'm having trouble finding a set of 60 carbs for my 59ci 40 and was wondering if the carbs from a 52ci 60 would work. Or if there are any other carbs that would work.

    I might have been close to one of the slowest boats of the whole weekend(stock 60/70 class) but I had a good time. Got me wanting to get my Merc worked over now.
