As long as they use genuine parts surly your still covered with warranty

most likely Mick, but I was more interested in a good service than the warranty, I think the warranty is more to do with being tied to dealer servicing etc than providing warranty repairs, but maybe that's just the cynic in me

oh yes, 90 don't go nowhere near the dealer, load of rubbish, use a local guy we've known for years, does a good job on all the motors, pity he don't do outboards, oh now there's a thought, ring Ian next week about outboards

I use Eddie at Beeston Marina in Nottingham. He charged me a sensible price & all the old bits that he changed were attached in a bag to each engine. He also did my gearboxes for me when I "found" that rock last year, top bloke.

give Jeff (Hutcheon) a shout, I'm sure he'll be keen to practice on yours, his warranty is up later this season so he'll be doing the same as you soon enough, n he's got 40 years worth of snapon scanners to play with
