Smitty said it was going to be night and day. I canít think of any other way to describe it. I donít think the boat was running right when we bought it. It is now.

Guys,

I will have to refill the coolant reservoir after it is installed. Is there anything special about the coolant that was in it? (something other than green... orange, maybe...?)

SB,

RiGhT...?

Not only is #7 pretty obvious, but I could swear #4 looks to be a reduced flow. I'm convinced I've found all the validation I need.

Yup. Found that. Probably gonna pull the trigger on it. I'm thinking about pulling all the injectors and sending them to Smitty, since the boat is down for a week anyway. Just take them out of...

We are getting none of that, that I can tell.

For the record, I am not expecting to find valve train damage to be the problem. I am now thinking it's injector related. We'll be getting...

I would never be so bold as to say it wasnít possible, but Iím pretty sure I had them on solid.
