Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with? I read what you wrote, there could be any number of things wrong. What is the history on this engine, have you ever personally seen it make full power under a load? How old is the fuel itself?

Hi Art. I tried to accept your request for a phone call but the system says there was a problem with your account. Did you want to get that fixed or did you want to stay online?
