Had the head off for a stuck injector during their replacement a few years back.
I'm gonna cover all the maintenance
basics.. belts, impeller, filters..and give the thing a few hard runs, maybe with some warps as I don't have a drogue. If I can find some seafoam I'll give that a shot too. I add startron and biobor to my fuel
, so not opposed to additives within reason.
Just replaced my belts today. Probably 3 years old and were starting to throw black dust, probably slipping a bit too and wouldn't stay as taut as they should. Fired up the engine after the belt change and she fired up w/o the hiccup. Will see in the next couple days after a few cold startups if that wasn't just an anomaly.
Lance, that's pretty much where my heads at. I'm in the bahamas
with an eye to the caribe. Not much desire to turn and make for a boatyard. Might be a blessing in disguise if it makes me a better sailor. I've noticed over the years that the boat does in fact like to sail. Not sure if it ever really fully accepted the engine that was given to it..
Thanks again yall for all the insight.
