    Technician Engine Analysis Checklist-

    Here is a free article I wrote on a step by step method of checking an engine over before purchase. This system is what I use as a Marine Engineer when called over to survey a perpultion system before purchase, or when an engine is giving long term problems.

    The free link is here-

    I would post it here, but it's a long article and then we loose the photos.
