    I killed it!!!

    Out yesterday and rpms started going down so I came back to shore. Turns out a nut off my center head came off. How bad do you think it will be when i open it up???

    I don't think that would do much at all. Did it spring a coolant leak? Put a nu back on and check compression.

    I say between a 4 & a 6 on a 10 scale... with 10 being the worst case.

    Why would one nut do that?? I cant imagine it loosing compression because of one loose nut? but stranger things have happened! Z

    Chances are one was off but the others were very loose.

    Sounds like you might need a new head gasket.
