The mainshaft bearings in the outdrive (where the crankshaft hooks to) are a pretty good suspect. It turns all the time with the engine running . Ive seen several that had bad bearings and cause the loss of power from the engine when trying to operate the boat. When the bearings go bad , they can seize up,causing the engine to bog,also chewing up the housing as the locked up bearing spins in its bore.Not pretty.
It should be easy to check with the engine out.

hey guys! Just a quick update and we found out that the valves weren't closing all the way which would not let the engine start...We just tore off the head and did it ourselves! Thanks again to all!

I guess we should have clarified the statement a little better. A few of us were under the impression that the engine would turn or "turn over" as you put it.. What you meant was it turned over but wouldnt start up...Right ?
Maybe we should develop a thread in general hotrodding about terminology and word usage so we all can get on the same page.
