Is the new filter leaking , did the old o ring come off on the old filter
Is the drain plug leaking into the water when its hot .

Hopefully you have made a small mistake somewhere and not been sold a nail
hi mate, have checked filter, drain plug, and spark plugs are fine, nice buiscut colour. there is a bit of soot on prop nut and looks like a bit of oil round the exaust. any idea's?
