    I spoke with said individual about 30 minutes ago. I need to correct my stats. Two boats, two engines in 2.5 outings. My bad. Clue # 2: Coming soon to a screen near you.

    Default Clue # 2

    We got the engine out last night. It gave me a sinking feeling when I saw the results of the 4th day out in his new boat. He is a member here. Guessing he hasn't seen this yet, too busy.

    Supposed to be Marine GenV 502. I saw 8.1 on the block. Plastic T.Chain cover, Brass freeze plugs, roller lifter retainers in the valley .BBC Mercruiser paperwork. Looking like Gen V to me.
