    Junk challenger again

    Rebuilt 787 engine. Started up first few heat cycles, ran mint.

    Took to water today, cavitating bad, whatever, new wear ring ill put in. Now the engine is back firing and hard as hell to start. Took off carbs and RV cover, rechecked timing. Set at 147 degrees with the 159 degree RV. WTF is going on????

    Start engine, coughs, then you gatta hit starter again. Will fire for sec then shut off. SOmetimes backfires.

    Ive spent months and one time a year trying to fix skis that just needed plugs
    How many gerbils could a gerbil jammer jam if a gerbil jammer could jam gerbils?

    And always carry a new set or two for any on-the-water repairs. You may even want to test new ones for a few minutes, 'cuz "new" today doesn't always mean working.
