    I went from a 10+ gph burn at cruise to 7.5 gph burn ( with a 5 mph increase in cruise) when I went from a 185HP 283CID Engine ( 4.6L) to a 260 HP 5.7L. Both engines carbed.

    Re: Volvo aq131a water in oil pan

    Bow up = stern ( and engine) down. The top of the exhaust loop in the "elbow" is a specific height by design above the "waterline'" ( boat level or running) to avoid this. Bow up on beach...
