    Well I collected the engine Thursday , Re fitted it Friday ,and connected everything back up again , Control cables , Wiring and fuel line , started it up in a water tank , Started instantly went into fast idle on choke , revs slowly reduced onto tick over , gave it a few revs out of gear and it sounded a lot better than before , dropped it into gear and instantly emptied the water tank with the prop wash . Will be launching the boat next weekend , Anti fouling just before the launch .

    Looks like the dealers have sorted it , and I didn't Oh and the nice dealer man gave me a bill for £340 plus £15 for 2 engine mounting bolts he justified the £7.50 each price by saying " They are genuine Yamaha parts " Gulp !!!

    Good result Allen.

    What was the fault in the end?

    Did you get the old bolts back?

    The dealers cleaned out the carbs , I already did this and ultrasonically cleaned each carb stripped down into compontent parts , and it made no difference to how the engine run , The carbs were spotlessly clean inside , I was told by the dealers they found salt and corrosion inside the carbs and filters work that one out ??? I can't

    They also fitted new gaskets, O rings and seals to the carbs part of the £340

    I had the 2 old bolts they were the lower 2 of the 4 fixings onto the transom , I cut the heads off making it easier to get off without going into the bilge under the floor , However I had the unenviable task when re fitting , It was like caving , good job i'm not claustrophobic , I was pleased that OLD boy me was still capable of doing this

    Mmm...sounds a bit strange. At least it's working!

    Good for you getting down in there and getting it done, when you've got it you don't loose it!
