Re: Won't Start after 4 hours of cruising.
I think we're all missing the elephant in the room. According to the OP, the motor is only making 2200 rpm at wide open throttle. According to a quick google search, the M25 should make 3000rpm at WOT.
That's a basic test of prop pitch or engine health and it's failed. I would want to know why.
Prop pitch is always my first guess, unless the condition changed and the prop hasn't been touched. However, if one has an adjustable folding/feathering prop, it may be hung up all of a sudden.
If not the prop, there is a problem with its internal organs somewhere. Fuel, air, compression. Check 'em out.
