    Default Looking for a performance shop or mechanic in the West Palm Beach or Naples area....

    I have a modified 496 HO Mercruiser. It has a Raylar 525 kit and numerous other modifications. 600 hp. I have had a couple of mechanics take a look at the engine and have been told that it is above their area of expertise. Everything checks out, but a surging neutral idle remains. Jumps around from 650 - 1100. Settles briefly after opening and closing throttle. Enough to get an uneventful shift into gear. Seems okay in gear at idle and runs well at speed.

    Any leads for a a shop or mechanic in my area(with a solid referral I'm willing to go anywhere in south Florida) that has some experience with modified Mercruiser engines would be very much appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Check for camshaft walking forward and install a cam button, if timing is jumping around at an idle. Also, check distributor drive gear and timing chain tension.
