    Unhappy Some bad news....

    Went to the shootout this weekend. Have been working on whipple installation for some time. Boat running extremely rich, but figured it was a fuel pressure issue. Installed new regulator, pressure now at 40 lbs Fire it up, runs decent but not great, alarm going off. Oil pressure, drive oil, water temp, oil level, everything OK, but still running rich. Merc computer says no signal from knock sensor. Although timing and power would suffer, still no clue as to fuel problem. I decide to not risk running the boat so we drive to shooters Had a great day. Call Dustin, says to unhook whipple computer to see if it cleans up (firing aux. injectors all the time)
    Doesn't make a diff.
    We have to leave early, so the guys at Lakeshore go to pick up the boat that is still sitting on the dock.
    They get there, starts really hard, won't hardly turn over.
    Fires up. Oil pressure ok, oil level ok, runs rough, but seems ok.
    Boat dies after reaching their dock (less than 4 miles), oil all over bilge, won't crank, very bad things have gone wrong with motor.
    they are pulling the motor now to see what is up. I have been fighting this fuel issue for quite some time now, and so we'll see what happens next.
    I hope everyone elses weekend was good.

    Oh yeah: Consintracy and Todd: Saw you guys leaving shooters dock saturday afternoon, didn't have time to catch you. The boat looked good! Hope you guys had fun, maybe catch up w/you next time.
