Found this gem on the 07' Honda 8Hp today.
Im guessing its due to over tightening of head bolts but i could be wrong, and not having any service history have no idea when it occurred.
Cost of repair is likely more than the value of the engine - which is a shame as it has had very little use.
Have yet to get a quote, but expect it will be dare, so no doubt a new winter project for myself if i can source a new block. Will have to manage with the trusty Tohatsu 3.5 for now.
Has anyone seen this before?
We have snow on the hill too . . . . .
