If you're cranking for excessive time periods try to remember to leave your RW intake closed until the engine catches. Flooding the exhaust system with RWC is never a good thing.

Having to use wide open throttle during starting seems to be SOP for some of these older Yanmars..
Ok, I am listening, does this apply to fresh water culled engines?
