Hello again

That's the issue of buying second hand engines, you never know for sure what has been done to them in terms of regular maintenence, that's why always strip cylinder head, clean out of all water passages, check, clean or replace thermostat, new head gasket torq to specs, change impeller, check impeller housing, new plugs, gear oil inspection/change, and away you go with confidence.

Yes, a 3 cylinder, 3 carbed engine has the power to go non full wot to have a skier up, thanks for the nice words about Palomino Island, it's a 30 mile round exciting cruise. On the way back to civilization have found a 100 penguin member family, very curious to strangers, a real visual delight for the eye, will post some pics by week end. Yes, Miraflores is a nice place too at the Pacific Ocean front.

Happy Sibbing
