Servicing

Servicing on most things these days consists of mainly visually inspecting things ( you some times see what you want /bothered to see), 2 strokes plugs, leg oil change should be able to do your self poss impellors, take in to service agent to check timming and check set up oil pump flow ? any damadge to prop, engine, wiring etc you should spot when checking over /cleaning after trip, 4 strokes a bit more complext with cam belts and engine management systems, but as said do as much as you can yourself and keep reciepts and records and find a trustworthy marine engineer for the rest, if i was happy that boat/ engine had been treated to a good life i would not be concerned with a main dealer book stamped, ( you can buy rubber stamps with any name on )

Hi
If you service it yourself how do I know the engine has the hours claimed? No diagnostics! you could though get this done on the last service before you sell it or just pay to get that done but either way I would like more than just the sellers word (if possible) on the hours it has worked and even better at what revs etc.

If you switch the ignition on the rev counter flips up to the hours its done and then goes back to zero.

I know that doesn't give you the revs etc.

Is it worth it for the diagnostics?

It gives you the cumulative so I suppose only when you are selling it, not required on each service unless I am wrong?
