    I plan on finding a set of the 60 carbs. Sure wish Mr. Danny (1995US1) still offered the 66.6hp kit with carbs and all in one package. Port timing isn't too big a deal to me because I will eventually have the thing ported out and all.

    Kind of learning the engine right now and have read nearly the whole service manual haha. Seems like this engine has a lot more top end than my previous engines? When I give it a little throttle in neutral it revs up real quick like a dirt bike. Also, when at low throttle I can feel it hit a point where it comes into the powerband and starts pulling real hard. Hopefully thats just the nature of this engine. I may pull the carbs and check them out and clean them to be sure.

    19p prop and new fuel tank are arriving today. Pretty anxious to see how the hull reacts. One detail I may not have mentioned is the engine is the gas assisted tilt version. No power trim, but if I hit something it will kick up rather than whatever would happen otherwise. I'm pretty positive I will end up installing a factory tilt and trim unit or possibly an aftermarket unit which would be great so I can keep the kick up feature.

    I like to run several of the smaller rivers than dump into the TN river and they can get shallow with stumps and debris.

    Will report back this weekend after I hit the water. Hoping to throttle through the bouncing and have enough prop to get some lift.
