Hi Mike,

What is the story on the engine, have you ever personally seen it run?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
ran fine all season. It died while idle at dock. Changed plugs, in line fuel filter, water separator and gas to no avail...

These are very complicated engines that require many special tools to work on. To start, the engine needs the compression checked, fuel pressure checked, air pressure checked, and it will likely need to be hooked up to a scan tool. Are you able to do any of those checks?

Is that a no?
