I was going to get him but flights were $800+ for Friday-Monday so I get him on Tuesday. One day I'll learn my lesson about booking flights 21 days in advance.

Unsane,
Sorry to hear about your issues. As Dean said, I have had great luck with Quality Marine on Merritt Island. They did some head work on both of my engines earlier this year and I am very pleased with the results. If you are interested, call Tim (321)302-1368.

Cool, I'll keep the number. Did a chemical block test this morning and it passed, so we're not 100% sure if it is the head gaskets. I'll just drain the tank again, change all the fluids and keep an eye on it.
Yea she did miss a little for a short time, I'll change the plugs too come to think of it, the ECM was just reprogrammed. It was running way too rich before, turning my transom black with soot, so I can imagine the plugs not liking that. Since it has passed the test so far, I'll just have to play "wait and see". Since I'll probably have the plugs out of it, I'll try to borrow my friends leakdown tester and do a compression test on it as well this Sat.

Un,
Does that means you won't be going to J'ville for the Poker Run? I think I might be going out Sat. afternoon in the Banana River with my friends from Iowa, maybe.... gotta check with HQ!

Not sure, going to work on it this weekend. After the gas money I spent last weekend, I'll be holding off this weekend anyways. I'll know if I'm going by the end of this upcoming weekend, it isn't until next weekend of the 10th. If a leakdown yields bad results, I'm going to call for repair right away and maybe I will be able to "cut in line" and get a quick repair. I might just call them anyways, by today hopefully when I'm done with my work here and see what we can figure out.

You say the engine has fresh water cooling????
Why not try a pressure test like we do on auto radiators? Pressurize the system, watch the gage to see if the needle drops. If it does you know there's a leak someplace. That would be my first test.

Did that this morning, put about 12 lbs and the needle stayed, then a chemical block test and it passed that too. That's why I'm a little perplexed. I'll just clean out the tank..........again, change all fluids and plugs too (it's about time). I'll just keep an eye on the whole thing. I'll keep everyone updated on my results, I'll try to get all the stuff done Sat. and test run on Sunday in Lk Monroe. I really can't thank everyone enough that has chimed in on this.

Un,
Sounds like you've got a handle on it. If you need some help, let me know.
