    Default 308 not started for 9 years

    Hey guys,

    We have been given the father in laws old flightcraft with a 308 in it. He hasnt started it for around 9 years. Its een covered etc so the boat is still in great condition. Im planning to pull the motor and check everything over. Anyone got suggestions otherwise?

    Thanks

    Check the impeller in the pump, and inspect the exchanges and block off plate on the timing case for corrosion
