Diamondback value

Looking at an 18 ft diamondback with all the lockers, rake, al trailer, heavy al rigging, boat has a 400hp small block with water in oil. Al heads, stinger gear box, looks to be about 10 years old, hull in great shape, good polymer. Looks like a lot of boat for a small block. Any idea on value?

Re: Spark plug torque specs

Champions work with the regular washers on my 540. I tried some denso without the copper washers and burned up 2 new cylinders. I swap out the champ d16 once a year only because they get rusty.

All your plugs are helicoil, not hard to replace but probably a pushrod leaking. Sometimes you can spin the tubes around and slow or stop a leak. Pushrod seals are not hard to replace, I use a Briggs and Stratton valve spring compressor to compress the pushrod tube spring. My AV540 always has at lea...
