Yes you are being anal. The answer is no. But an engine is an engine.
I have also not done any work on a land engine due to UOA either.
But DOING work on the engine is what I am trying to PREVENT by performing a UOA.
Spending a bit of money on UOA is worth it to me because:
- UOA HAS caused me to change how I operate my engines to PREVENT problems.
- UOA allows me to know that how I am operating my engines is NOT harmful.
The GOAL is to NEVER have to do work on an engine due to a problem found by UOA. Hopefully, UOA allows me to prevent the problem in the first place, or worst case, before the problem gets really bad.
When we have a marine engine I will do UOA. Cheap information to have available.
