Default K&B 7.5

Back in the mid 90s K&B built some really crappy engines. I owned a 7.5 inboard that blew up everytime I started it. I sent it back to them 3 times. And each time they fixed it, it broke. On Breakin Fuel.
One thing I did on my 7.5 outboard was to take out the glow plug and accach a small chunk of flex cable to the collett and the other end to a drill and turn it over. I lubed mine with Marvel Mystery Oil, Prather After Run oil stuff like that. New motors are very tight on the TDC so break it in carefully. Hope this helps you.
