    Long Idles

    Have a pair of 1990 Merc 525SC's (rebuilt in '98, 250 hrs.)
    Was wondering if long idles (parades, etc.) would have any adverse effects on the engines.
    Engines idle fine, have had no problems with them...yet. Don't want to unnecessarily create any either. Thanx for any input.
