    Hmmm... been out of state for a while. Any chance you used ethanol gas from a gas station instead of marine gas? This can gum up the fuel filter and pump to reduced fuel flow. If you still want the carb, let me know. The new one, (from Moyer Marine) is a deal at $300. Low hours used one for $175. But I don't think your problem is the carb (having tried exactly what your doing). A long shot is check the voltage on the fuel pump - if it cuts out after you start it may be your oil pressure sensor/fuel cutoff switch on the lower port side of the engine. Mine failed, and I could get jsut enough fuel by gravity to start the engine, but not to keep it running. And check your fuel line connections for air leaks - they can do the same thing.

    Please advise on condition and model of carburetors...I have late model Atomic new to me in August 2020. 74 Pearson 30. No engine history recent fragmented ownership. Research, found on this forum that my PO replaced my carb from Moyer in August 2008. I am trouble shooting what appears to be fuel problem after my first attempt to start engine yesterday(much prep work done before attempt with support). Encouraging result yet could not get sustained startup, and troubling evidence of lack of fuel in carb throat. Evidence is no fuel making...collecting info and investigating. Short story, I may buy one of your carbs for a backup. Advise when you can. Thankful. Stay well, Tim
