Hi Ty,

Got it, those are the correct plugs. Next question, is the engine actually heating up? If you pull the engine cover off and run the boat for a bit, and then touch the top of the cylinder head, is it nice and warm, about 160F, or is it running on the cool side?

been doing some testing this afternoon and I took out the thermostat and put in a pan of water on the stove and she opened up at 120*

Do you have an Infra red temp gun to take the engines actual temperature? (if not, can you get one, they are not terribly expensive)
