Welcome! Need support, you got it. Or share you ideas and experiences.
Anybody know where I can find a "how to" on rebuilding the carb on a Sears Gamefisher 9.9 purchased in 1980? I found the parts list on sears.com but no listing for anything like a rebuild kit. What besides gaskets need replacement? Have heard that some Gamefishers were built by Eska and others by Chryslers from other posts on this forum. Also heard that electronic ignitions for this model are no longer made - is this true? Perhaps additional info would help in my quest for these answers. Model # is 217.586231. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Tailgunner, you out there?
Mike, usually you will get a new needle and seat , this is basically a new idle screw and the seat it fits into. a diaphram if your carb has one and sometimes new jets, gaskets etc.Depending on the model of your particular motor, the parts are either available from Chrysler/force/Mercury dealers, or your local napa auto parts store. NAPA will have to order parts. Many independant shops also keep parts for these motors.Rebuilding the carb simplified, consists of taking the carb apart. soaking it overnight in carb cleaner. and cleaning all the jet passages and fuel ports with a small stiff wire and compressed air and reassembling the carb with new parts. I will help all that I can through email. Iam away from the computer for days at a time as I travel quite abit on business. I will reply as soon as I read your post or get the email. Good luck,Tailgunner
