well yeah, they where the only one's allowed to make two stroke for a while I heard, due to emissions or sumfin, but then I don't knoow much about engines tbh, and my engine just came with rib. but i've got no real complaints with my DI. And it sounds like proper Beast when opened, as opposed to the girly hum you get wiv 4st.

I did take the spark plug out of the cylinder that looked to have petrol coming out when the outboard was tilted up. Just a light dusting of soot, so nothing much wrong with that!

Just as a matter of intrest when indexing and marking the spark plugs you dident happen to use a pencil instead of a marker pen to draw a line ,
in some cases some types of ink or especially a graphite pencil line that that is used to mark the plug position on the ceramic can and will cause the spark to track down the insulater causing a misfire especially at low revs .
It's not a bad idea to wipe the line off after fitting .
Me old man used to use the pencil line down a spark plug trick to catch out his new apprentices.
