WB engine. Hull #3

just joined here and see this is an old thread. However, reading this, I have a sinking feeling. I bought my 400 a year ago and have had two engine failures sailing in the past two weeks. Gradual reduction in revs around 2000rpm, then once down to ~1800 it slowed and stopped within 20 seconds. Thought it was a corroded ground connection, and assumed it was an electric primary fuel pump not receiving full power. How can I check if my engine ever had the modifications you mention? Many thanks. Ian
