Is idling for long periods of time bad on an engine, lets say something like mine, a locked out 10:1 498 stroker with iron heads a solid roller and around 650 lift?
Every year I always talk about how it would be great to decorate the boat with some lights and drop it in the dana point harbor to do the Christmas boat parade. We do it with my gramps 40ft sail boat and it's a good hour long idle around the harbor. I'm just curious how hard this would be on an engine like mine. If this was a stock mill i wouldn't even worry about it but with the timing locked out and the cam the idle is alittle rough. A though I had to help was to just setting the timing down to 10-15* since I wouldn't be running the rpms up over 2K anyway.
