Re: Test running an old Volvo Penta while in storage?
I'll just add one item to the above good advice - if you want to run the engine for a while, like to fully warm it up, have a hose handy to keep the intake bucket full. When I was running my Perkins 107 on the hard, the bucket lasted no time at all - I had to keep the hose running full blast to stay ahead of it.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
