running 28" outlaws, 2" snorkel, dyno with a 170 jet, aftermarket muffler
when i get in deep water i'm getting water in the carburetor, the snorkel is dry no water in the breather box tub, have sealed all the snorkel hoses and connections, it is a slow leak can play around in water for 30 second or so before it dies, any suggestions

thanks

wonder if maybe something wasnt tightend down correctly when they had the carb apart. You could double check all bolts on the top and bolts on the bowl. Water can find its way in the smallest of openings.
Or maybe you have 500 like mine, and it didnt like the water period, until I did the exhaust and jetted. Im only using a 172 jet, and im snorkeled with the hmf, maybe you are just running to rich???

Where did you get a 172? My jet kit went from 170-175, are you sure your not sniffing gas.

whoops....I am sniffing gas I guess....175 is what it is, I got confused with the 450 that has a 142 jet, to many numbers.
