JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else the Marine Mechanic should be aware of?
Customer: I have had the engine for five years and always run the fuel out of it when not in use have never changed the plugs the boat does not get used very much the plugs are different they are NGK they only have a electrod and no way to gap them.
