    Default 555 questions

    We're looking at a boat with 555s that have 3700 hours. The engines appear to be well kept by the seller. What is the typical life span of the 555 and what are the pros/cons of the 555? Can they operate at trawler speeds 75-90% of the time with the occasional hard run to blow and clean things out? Fuel consumption? Things to look for (ie. Detroits leak oil) that are normal and not to be afraid of?

    Any other info is much appreciated!

    Thank you

    Best regards,
