    Engine test without stinger?

    Any problems with a brief engine test (just to turn over and see if all three cylinders come up) with ear protection and no stinger?

    It sounds kind of irresponsible, but I really don't care to put my stinger in and out if I need to break down the engine again...

    Thanks

    tricks on installing the stinger (it really isn't that bad)

    you have to undo the rubber strap that holds the waterbox in place

    once you do this you can push the waterbox to the rear about an inch

    install the stinger rear end first, start with the stinger pipe so that it is positioned in the rubber coupler on the waterbox, next depending on which head you are using you might have to force out the side of the hull opening a bit to get the stinger into position

    (same process for removing, slide waterbox and stinger to the rear before trying to remove the stinger pipe)

    Phillip is right. Once you do this a few times it becomes really easy. Then you try it on a XLT and learn what difficult is

    I've done it a few times now and got the hang of it... It's still a PAIN IN THE ARSE!

    Maybe it's time to get a gp1200/1300?
