Customer Question

I have a 1987 V-6 4.3 w/Mercruiser outdrive. I just had the starter replaced. Now I have very poor performance. Is there some adjustments that need to adjust? They forgot to tighten a clamp causing the water to shoot out into eng. compartment. We tightened the clamp that made the eng. to run alot smoother but it feels like the trans. is slipping or like a brake is on and holding it back?
