RE: Transom Soot

Thanks again everyone. The engine runs great. We moved her 600 miles after purchase withou a hiccup. Starts immediatly. Burns 2.5 gals per hour @ 1800 rpm. No oil consumption. We had the tanks pumped and cleaned and fresh 700 gallons (ouch) of fuel. Treated fuel with a Valvetec fuel additive. Filtered through a 10 micron Racor, then 2 micron engine filter (both new). I looked at the Walker website and it sounds interesting ( but worry if it is snake oil). Anyone had experience? The injectors are certainly a possibility, but I would think they would show additional symptoms (hard starting, visible smoke) Enjoying the forum.
