:bigg rin: Noise
has gone !!!
I thought I better not blow this engine up like my old Hilux and went to the marina mechanic
. From my description he said "sounds like air, run for another 20mins and if it doesn't go away, he'd take a look".
I went back started it and the noise had gone
I hope it was air, not a sticking valve. It would be strange for valve to be unstuck and then stick when the engine warmed up wouldn't it?
We only need a few more months from this engine. We need to relocate so I can take up a job and join my wife as a worker again. if it keeps playing up with a job we can look at other options but I'm growing attached to it.
Pretty exciting, we've had this boat for a year and a half and only been for a test sail and to the fuel dock
. We have a boat again!
Of course there's a definite exhaust
leak, boat stinks haha next job has arrived
Thanks all, very much appreciated
