No wrong you must be assertive with engines you should say 'Everything is ok, OK' that works Des

Heck! I wouldn't dare, mine would sulk for days. I've got the Opti "Moody" model. Or am I getting a bit confused?

having built copetition engines all my life, all beit not out boards. i would rather service it my self where i can. but was concerned at the brain not logging a DDT being attatched to it,

i would personally drop gear oil after 15 hrs or so check all bolts and mounting to transom/prop. check for loose wires due to vibrations etc lube every thing up again. then go and rape the mutha in a big swell

Well my Jeep wusnae. The manufacturer's recommendation is 1200 miles run in period followed by a gradual increase in usage for a while after.

I seem to remember 500 miles was common in the 'old days'.
