Hopefully the complete survey comes back with great results. As noted earlier, I have read that 3GM30F had a life span of about 3500 hrs.
Could you recommend list of items that makes since to rebuild / replace i.e. injectors, pumps, starter, alternator, etc... per Jim's comments? Seems like everytime I turn around their is a issue like a leaky fuel line so I had the fuel line assembly replaced and then our previous Marina had to move the sailboat to do a quick haul out and they turned off the raw water seacock... didn't know this until I went out and the high temperature alarm went off. Lesson learn there, always... check for engine cooling water coming out the exhaust before leaving the dock.
Thanks for all your advice.
