The fact that this boat was stripped down and rebuilt minus the drivetrain and on its first voyage Every things works great!
But I do have a slight issue I want to address, I know these old 351's are cold hearted, But with 2 pumps this motor fires up perfect and runs great! Untill I Put it in gear then it will start moving and run at 600 rpm like its susposed to and then it will start to Try to shut down then Die!
don't get me wrong this is only after we been sitting and it Will fire right back up no problem and run I just got to keep it in neutral and idle up then go!
Also I do let the boat run for 2-3 minutes before I decide to put it in gear!
Is there something I need to adjust?
Everything is fine once the boat has been running! It just don't like to idle in gear when cold even after 2-3 minute warm ups
Maybe choke? I got a new one installed
