Owner notes: "I've done a lot of work to this engine. Inherited a few issues which have now been rectified and engine runs perfectly. Idles and runs with zero issues, no smoke, no bad behavior. I could talk about what I have done with this engine for a week. Engine room is very clean and thoughtfully laid out. This isn't one of those nightmare engine rooms where everything is rusty and hasn't seen light of day. I appreciate a clean engine space, new hose clamps, everything loomed, chafe free, no drips or weirdness going on here. I am very particular about how things are maintained."
