St. Tropez Carburettor Change.

Postby IBIRIVA » Tue Jul 21, 2015 3:40 am

Guys, this is my first post on the forum. I am currently closing in on a St. Tropez 1976 here in Spain. The boat has been well looked after from new, but has been stood for 2 years in storage. I am currently evaluating what has to be done immediately. As with all things in Spain and France it seems there are never any records or logs or previous receipts. The Crusader 350s are still on the original Rochester carbs. I have seen other boats packaged with Crusaders and they have been changed to Edelbrock, with what I am told are good results and work well with the modern blended fuels. Where would be recommended to buy a pair as they will have to come from USA as there is no support or specialists in Spain. I am not interested in rebuilding the Rochesters. Regards

A shame not to rebuild the Rochester's. They are really good carbs when adjusted properly. I have an excellent rebuilder of the carbs if you change your mind. I help another owner a couple of years ago.

As far as Eldelbrock, I'm not sure the #1409 is large enough for the CFM you need. They may have other models. There are several places to buy those carbs here in the States.

I have a Rochester on my 454 in my 1970 Corvette and love it.
