    Stick some ear muffs on it with the outdrive down and fire it up. Not much else to it.

    i have the earmuffs for it , i assume that it needs the water to cool the exhaust , does it also help to cool the closed sys ? after closer look today its a 79, with 750 hrs , pretty clean for the year , the previous owner said he could never get it to run perfect but he had some local asshats working on it ! how bout some initial settings ,timing , point gap and dwell , idle rpm when running on trailer , thanks guys (or gals)

    Drive to the middle of the lake, pull the plug and swim like hell for the shore.
