Got my rebuilt quadrajet back yesterday, slapped it on, took the boat for a rip, everything seems good. The guy that rebuilt it for me is coming back to do the fine tuning, but he asked me what rpm's the boat should be getting. I'm not sure. Any help would be great.
Merc 454 mag
23p ss prop
Did 62 on the speedo at 4500 rpms yesterday
For anyone with similiar problems with their boat falling on its face when getting out of the water, the quadrajet had a broken internal spring (not sure of the name) and a gasket that was ripped.
Also, since I'm still getting familar with engines, are the primaries the front two flaps? Should they be open when the boat is not running?
