Customer: The engine is about 10/15 years old but does not have many hours on it. It ran fine until a few weeks ago when I foun
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: It ran fine until a few weeks ago when I found the shear key had split. I replaced it and the engine hasn't run since. There does not feel like there is much compression.
