Suzuki DF8 - Brand New - Valve Cover Cracked
So, a few weeks ago I took delivery of my nice new sloep with Suzuki DF8 remote steered engine, drove it home (to the canal near my house) - and oil was everywhere.
On investigation, the cover that covers the valves (forgive my lack of tech here) was cracked - uniformly all round.
My boat shop took it back the following day, and are currently rebuilding this part of the engine with a new cover.
They say there was no cause of this, but simply it was delivered like this from the factory.
Has anyone had any similar problems or known this to happen? The mechanic from the shop seemed to be as surprised as I was!
