Good man,

Engines aren't rocket science, unless it's a rocket engine...

need to get to a known position and my dad gave me a great bit of advice.. "If you've got twin matched engines, when you change something on one of them, change it on the other too".

A boat is not truly yours until you start fixing the things that you have personally broken.

Just realised you can't avoid the dealers in entirety having just spent over two hundred quid on the gaskets and o rings. Chuff me, makes one litre a mile seem cheap as chips!!!!!
