Why do I either see him floating in the middle of a lake with a dead engine, or in jail for flipping out when the motor died?

I make mistakes everyday....better look in your closets people...

Guys I don't know why Mark has not posted a response by now, but I can tell you that he did go to the water and he did go for a ride and he did take the boat home. And from what I am hearing he was happy. Now lets just see if he is a man of his word, because it sounds as if Robert was a man of his.

Ok -- met with robert this afternoon -- turned out the problem was a couple bad rocker's. For some reason they were not being oiled properly and they over heated causing the pushrod failure. (I am sure once robert is re-enabled he can give a more accurate description).

Robert put new ones in with a higher grade push rod -- fired it up and seemed to run fine. During this time Jack Bailey had called to find out how things were going. He then offered a set of Gold Crane roller rockers (at no charge to me). This was to ensure that there would be no issue at all with rocker failure ever again. I thank him and TJ(Ambusher) for providing the roller rockers and having that extra security in the motor.

Got them installed and adjusted (robert and his helper did it right there while i waited) and we then headed down to lake wylie. I met up with Ambusher and he went out for a ride to test out the motor. He did take some video and a few pictures (hopefully he will post it).

The only problems found were a leaky pepcock (just wasn't shut all the way) and the alternator belt was slipping. They were able to fix those two items on the spot and every thing ran fine. He did point out i had a leaky exhaust manifold which i already knew about (new ones will be on order shortly - -money money money).

So the bottom line is that power marine took care of me in the end.

Also i'd like to thank everyone on OSO -- I was truly "upset" with this whole ordeal -- and with your encouragement I gave them another shot -- and things worked out well.

I am up to 3 hours on the motor -- and I'll be taking it gently for a while -- but i have my fingers crossed that this phase of my boat project is complete.

Steve can you turn on power marine so they can respond

thanks
