Customer Question
I have a...

I have a twin1989 400 horse Hinos in a Bayliner Avanti. I don't know how to service it, where to get parts, how to find the pencil zinks in the water exchanger (if it has them).

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

I also have heavy white smoke when it first starts. everyone tells me that is normal. But it smokes out the marina. It's heavier then most, and is very embarrassing. I don't have the serial number on hand. I will have to get it later.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Thanks

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?

Thats about it. Thanks

I will send a model number tonight if that helps. I don't think she noted that it was marine motors. It may be also important to note that the smoke leaves after 10 minutes of running.

Do you need the model number. I haven't had a chance to get it. I will be at the boat this weekend.

Hi, yes, the model number would be very helpful.
