Thought I'd post a link to a british supplier of spark plugs at good prices:

I think this may be the Anti Tamper seal so the dealer can see if you have had the plugs out.

More like an assembly grease they use on the threads .

The dealer also noticed that my motor hadn't been sprayed with an anti corosion protection so he did that for me . Its like thin waxoyl , maybe acf50 or similar . He said lost of dealers don't do it but they are supposed to when they pdi the motor. Glad it had only 25 hrs on fresh water when i got it .

Two days ago I started engine and left it at idle for approx 20 mins and then turned if off. Could it be fouled plugs?

Any comments much appreciated.

Has the problem been solved and what was it
