No, I am not saying that. I just like to have more fuel delivery than is necessary. It has been my experience that in fuel delivery having more available is always the better choice.

You will not know for sure until you pull the cylinder heads off. I wouldn't expect to find any good news. Most likely, you pushed a hole in #4 piston. If your intentions are to let the engine...

Can you be more specific with what the engine is doing? I agree with MikeTkach. That engine should last much longer than 250 hrs.

Not that it is that much better, but the drives look like B-Maxs to me. Pics are not that clear.

I don't see where the original post mentioned that both engines have the same problem. If that is the case, as was mentioned, I would concentrate on things that are common to both. Most likely,...

Yes you can. I would suggest taping up the intake ports on your drive with some duct tape. That way, the seapump will not suck any air.

I have assembled several engines using Calico coated pistons. I have always oiled the skirts, pins and rings. I even oil up the cylinder walls. I cant see any reason not to oil them up.
