Hello, my name is***** will assist you.
First thing do a compression test on the engine. Make sure that all cylinders are over 100 PSI and are with-in 15% of each other. Also test for spark on all cylinders. After running on the hose, remove the plugs ans see if there may be water on them. If there is, you will have a leak either in the head or the exhaust and that will need to be repaired
