    Hey everyone,
    I need some advice. I'd like to order some parts for fixing the hesitation issue with the 60 when this house remodel is done with. It sounds like I need to address the carb and distributor but I need some help with the following options:

    JimC rebuild Carb $299 + shipping

    OEM Carb rebuild kit $76.02

    used distributer $233.75

    vacuum advance distributor $279.50

    I'm thinking since this is the first rebuild I could probably do the rebuild myself? I have no idea which distributor I should get. But again the goal with this rig is remote camping and fishing and some significant confidence it will start for the trip home with the family would be a nice feeling.
    Thanks-

    you need to diag the real issue before blowing money. unless of course you just have money to blow.

    I guess I feel as though the rig is 20 some years old and if either of these things might give me future problems out in the middle of nowhere I would rather take care of it in my garage.
