    My New Mission

    I do feel they should have a atm machine. But I also agree with the store people are getting out of control using plastic. What pisses most stores off is when people constantly buy under 5 dollars worth of crap and stick it on plastic. A guy the other day at a shop showed me a charge from people...

    starting engine rebuild

    The heads are the key spot for performance. If up grading the camshaft 99% of the time the stock used springs or junk on stock heads. Only a unprofessional machinist will add shims on stock springs to boost spring pressure up. I recommend buying a complete cam kit that comes with cam, lifters...

    31 Express

    Exhaust Fumes in Engine Compartment

    I agree with Chris also. I have also noticed in smaller boats when the tank is full and because a boat runs a open fuel vent unlike a car. The movement of you getting in and out of the boat tends to purge the fumes out of the tank. I have also seen the fuel filler hose get hard and loose its...

    Excessive steam from exhaust

    Bad gas will not clogg a fuel filter. Only trash in the tank will or the filter is getting filled with water. Warm water temp and cooler air outside will make the boat steam more or the other way around. If their is no water in the oil, and the engines are running cool don't worry about it...
