hi everyone have just bought a 14ft bellcraft with a forward steer 40hp electramatic Johnson.
whilst she starts like a gem its rough and splutters thru acceleration....once up on a plane she runs better..but finding the sweet spot seems very difficult.
im thinking of cleaning up the carbi and putting a kit thru carbi and maybe some new points.
the needle valve has been modified by last owner saying it kept coming loose
its also missing the charging unit/alternator, would like to like to get one of those

I did about 20 km distance and went thru almost 18-20 litres, surely this is way over normal...

So im looking for a carbi or does anyone know of a suitable bolt on replacement
And what sort of charging circuit/system if not original could I get
