I do remember this advice however the YSM8 manual shows no picture of the proper rotation. Also, the piece fits PERFECTLY either way. So even if we pulled it and checked we would have seen it looked "good" and just stuck it back on- bc why would we think any different? The hole is the diameter of the BASE of a pen TIP (not a pen, the tip).
It was one of those things that you just had to have seen it before to know. But you guys were right about the culprit. I just dont think without that guy calling and actually telling us to try flipping it over it would have made a difference. I wish I had a pic to upload so you could see what I am talking about. Its insane. Why would they make it to fit both ways perfectly?
Anyway- Im just glad its taken care of. I just hope all the run aways did not mess up any internal parts... If it did- well Im not even going to go there now. Right now all is clear for launch. Monday ill get scraped and de-fouled and tues or wens on an outbound tide ill head from Arlington Marina to the ICW and try to make a run to st Augustine before anchoring the night and trying for NSB the following day. Im hoping I can do 3 knots motor sailing.. I got to tell you im not looking forward to a 20-30 hour motor sail in June heat at 3 knots. But, the boat aint going to move its self... Big week ahead. I will update accordingly.
Just wanted to let those interested know the results.
No need to keep the thread going- just wanted to satisfy some curiosity.

I was curious, thanks for sharing. You'd think that the part would be keyed to for only one way. Sheesh.

Re: Harborless Diesel Prognosis

Congrats on finding someone who knows your engine well enough to know that particular proclivity.
The float needle on the carburetor for my Atomic 4 can be inserted in the wrong orientation too. Been there done that. Incorrect orientation does not result in a run away engine but causes other noticeable problems right away.
Put this experience in your black box of knowledge. It may come in handy some day.
