Sorry to hear your motor has taken a vacation. Hopefully the damage will be slight. Could you have gotten some bad gas? Where do you buy it anyway? Did you notice where the air noise was coming from when you did the leak down test?
At least you have a spare motor.. Then you wont miss any boating, and appreciate that new motor all the more when it goes back in!!
Mine is still running.. I keep looking at the gauges and everything is right on the money.. Oil temp, psi. fuel psi, etc.. just low on top rpms.. but I have not chased it. It pulls extremely hard in the middle, but just dies at top end. It doesnt matter, I want a couple of years of reliable boating then I will look for the big numbers again.. So you guys at LOTO, relax.. no threat here!!
Next time lets have a beer on the beach or something Doug and we can chat about it all..
