The fact that the guy is the ''main engineer'' and is checking for other peoples experiences to save diagnostic time does him credit. None of us know everything.
Forums can save so much time and cost when diagnosing engine problems,there is a vast wealth of experience available just waiting to be called upon.Why not use it?
I know little about outboards but have 30 plus years of experience with automotive engines and letters after my name to prove it ,but I'm still learning every day.
Credit to the man for asking.

Oh sorry pal, I forgot that the second I achieved the title "marine engineer" I automatically learned every single thing there is to know about marine engines and suddenly stopped caring about my customers interests, becoming so stubborn that I wouldn't ask for some advice or to see if anyone else had similar problems in the attempt to save my customer some money.

Well, it was "quoted" at Dirtbag, so I think you're in the clear

I think Damo's post was a Masterpiece.

Wasn't a dig at you fella.

My post was in response to the "pointless contribution to the board" winner.
