" Hi,any pointers would be much appreciated.
Motor starts ok and runs for 10 minutes o.k.
Then it stops dead,takes a bit of starting then runs for a few minutes less-carries on like this a few times then wont start.

Had the engine checked out at the local marina workshop and they say it runs for an hour in their test tank.I think they blew out the fuel line (built in tank) and took the money.
Where should i start looking guys? "

" Gordon,

It sounds like the engine is getting too hot.

Tony-Thanks for that-looks like you are spot on-ran it in the tank-water comes out of the pee hole for a few minutes then turns to spluttering steam followed by the engine cutting.

Again thanks for the advice
