Burnt plastic? Is it running hotter than normal? 2,000 RPM max? Fouled prop?, plugged mixing elbow at exhaust manifold?, very dirty bottom? Restricted air intake from bugs or whatever? Did this just happen or did it come about gradually? Besides the work you did, has there been any other work done lately? Let us know what you find, always interesting to learn from other's experiences.
