Hi guys, I hope you are all ok. This weekend was a good one. I cleaned the engine checked the glows, sparks system, cleaned the carbs, the fuel pump, and start it...after 4 seconds it ran (with water of course).
I made it run for a few minutes checking the t° and what a wtf noise rhhoooo.
Once it was alsmost hot, I took the compressions and all are exactly the same...good next point.
OK, let's get back to the topic, I decided to make a small hole in the transom and the good new is that the wood is in good shape without water of humidity.
I think the Johnson 300HP is simply too heavy and a bracing of the transom should be welcome to drive it at 100%.
Anyway, I decided to resell it, too big for me and I want to keep my Tullio Abbate 21'' for family while making a new projects for my pure fun: a Piranha spi F3 I bought a few days ago. I will post some pics here later.
So, if some people are interested in the boat, trailer and engine, the boat need some clean and refurbish of one seat; the boat and engine covers are in nice shape and the trailer can drive without problem for long distances. The engine is in very nice shape, I think never ran in salt water, the two VRO pumps have been disconnected.

have fun and nice day!!!
