Mariner (Brunswick) 50HP W/fuel leak in hose behind

Customer Question

Mariner (Brunswick) 50HP W/fuel leak in hose behind carburetor that is on a tee prohibiting pulling it through with a new one. I think carbs have to come off but not sure and need to know if carbs and manifold to air box come off as one package?

Got it. On this here what you would do is remove the intake manifold, and remove the carbs, intake, air box all in 1 shot. Then bring it over to the workbench in order to fix the leak. It is much easier taking it off as one assembly than taking each individual carb off one at a time. Does that make sense?

yES IT LOOKS LIKE THE 90* MANIFOLD CONNECTION IS PART OF THE ENGINE BLOCK SO MUST HAVE TO REMOVE BOLTS AND SLIDE THE CARBS DIRECTLY OUT. iS THIS CORRECT?

OF COURSE LEAVING THE AIR BOX CONNECTED ON THE INTAKE SIDE

I just realized this uses the intergrated intake. I don't have any information for this engine. I will opt out. Good luck.
