Yamaha 150's blowing up?

I have heard that Yam has installed plastic counter-weights on the crank of their 150 4-stroke, and when you get the engine a tad hot the weights tend to melt, and kaboom. Anyone heard of that? A Yam salesman told me this info. thanks. j

Still working

Yes, he still works for them; they sell Yams, Hondas and Johnsons. I have never known Mike to pass along REALLY off-the-wall info (sure, a little salesman BS, that's his job!) so I am real curious.
Dry ice? Oh, to cool the hot engine. I get it. Ha Ha. No, I think it is just
frozen BS from President Bush; we get a lot of it, you know. That guy is a trip and a half; where the hell did we dig him up? (This is off-topic, so I will not get started. Back to RHIBs.....)
