I've had considerable success over the years in keeping things in safe and top condition but releasing the pull stop prematurely caused my 100 hp diesel to do the back stroke with water from the wet exhaust. Shook the boat but only bent 3 of the 4 con rods.After I did complete re and re for 8 grand I'm much more careful and the bruises on my butt have faded somewhat.As an aside I put a solenoid valve on the riser to drain if the anti syphon were to fail (oil press) Works and I think it's a good idea.
