Thanks for the input guys, I sent him four 750 Holley`s this afternoon and I am looking forward to go boating without having to change 16 plugs for a change

Kurt.

WETTE VETTE, What can you tell me about the 980 that you had. I have just bought it from jagrlj. Thanks, The Ironman.

Dean did a stage 5 mod to a 1050 Dominator on my previous boat. After he did the modifications it was about 95% of where I wanted it to be. Prior to Deans mods it would barely run, coal black transon etc. I think the biggest reason he couldn't get it "perfect" is the fact I was over carbed for my set-up. Good results and great turnaround times. I think Dean puposely sets up his carbs a tad rich for safety issues, in my app I took out 2 jets sizes all the way around.

93 formula here....Yes, I am still satisfied. Just turn the key & instant starts. I have never, ever had to touch the carb since installed. As for "J tubes", I gues if you don't send the carb with them, then you don't get any back. Mine has them as required.
If you call Dean, he will talk to you. That alone is worth some dollars.
As for the $1100.00 bill mention by another for two carbs, it was NOT just a rebuild to the carbs, but milling, drilling, filling, metering, flowing venturi's, etc. There's more to it than a $35.00 carb kit from Auto Zone !! Dean Nickerson is an excellent choice for carb work. I got mine back asap....shipped Monday, returned on friday of the same week(overnight shipping was $55.00 each way). I could not be happier!
