Mercruiser does specify what tools are required for the dealer to carry, specifically if he is a Platinium dealer, before an engine hits the market, lord smartcraft **** was pre 2001, I think Merc should know which kind of service their respective dealers are offering, they are aiming to make it like the automotive industry, and unfortunately they do not install their own engines nor drives and hope the mfg/ dealer do their respective duties, what decent rigger would let a boat go ANYWHERE without running it, I am sorry to say that a lot of dealers today do not give a hoot about your boat after they have gotten your $$$$$$$$$$$$$. I do not believe Merc is to blame in any way, even if the motor or electrical system was defective, with good communication between dealer and mfg, something would have been done yesterday!!, My .02 cents, from experience

Thanks for the replies everyone. Special thanks to the offers to help behind the scenes! The techs think they have the issue solved and will prove that theory today when the part comes in (another new crank position sensor). If that does not work I will certainly be calling on those who offered.

Thanks again... gotta luv OSO and the "brotherhood" that has been created around our style of boating!!!

Sounds great PQ, Look forward to the good news and winter boat sodas with you this weekend. Lets see, HRPA birthday party Friday, Super Bowl on Sunday and The ST. Judes Poker Run planning meeting on Monday. I forgot, what we are doing on Saturday? Hope it works. A bad Crank Sensor is not a good thing. Good Luck,
