Would you agree with this or is it more involved and a job for a specialist ?

I think I will have a proper service in the spring of next year, that will give me peace of mind.

I'd like to hear your views on looking after the engines.

My engine is a 1990 2 stroke Mercury 60.


Any meaning read into my message is the product of your own mind...
