    Ordered a carb rebuild kit, did confirm the boat already has petronix ignition. So again I wait...

    Nice progress. With any luck it was just a stuck ring.

    I had pretty good luck on a 351 cobra boat that had a low cylinder doing a soak with seafoam in the low cyl. Got it hot, pulled the low cyl plug and filled the cyl. After a day cranked it and put the plug back in, gained a solid 20 psi after running the smoke clear.

    Well...she sounds really healthy. Just cleaned and rebuilt the carburetor. Next, Iíll be pulling the motor to replace the outdrive and get it ready for the summed. Thank you everyone for the help and support!
