Default Just a quick two thumbs up !!

Had multiple conversations today with one of the most helpful gentlemen i've dealt with in the marine industry. His name is Mark and he owns and operates MER Performance Marine Services down in South Carolina. Took as much time as my dumbassss needed to explain things to me and give me both best and worst case scenarios. Mark just a quick thanks for your patience. If ya dont want to take my word for it feel free to contact him yourself

Stbd motor 30% if thats based off 100psi is pretty high,.did he think it was rings or valves?

somethings happening on #6 and #7 on stbd engines, the engines were NOT hot when this was done...engines were run for approx 5 mins then this test was performed...unsure if its a valve issue or what

they potential buyer ran away once he saw the results so MArc never went any further to determine if it was leaking thru exhaust, intake, manifold etc...nor did he do a compression test.

5 min should be enough to get a little temp in it,unless the motor had been sitting a while and had rust on the seats,

Have they reajusted the price figuring you will have to freshen the motors,I would do both!!!
