So I'm going to pick up a 2000 260 Express I've purchased this week. Waiting for all the title paperwork to go through. It has the PCM 5.7 TBI with under 160 hours on it. Had a survey and sea trial done, during the sea trial the hose blew off the raw water pump ( loose clamp ). The thermometer shown 240 before it was shut down and anchored (I was present during sea trial but not operating the boat). I reattached the hose and we waited for a passing boat to pull us in. We got a tow back to the dock and the surveyor continued to check out other items (30 minutes). We went to lunch and returned to try to restart the boat, it still wouldn't start (thermometer @140). Had a local mechanic check it and said all was good. My question here is after about 2+ hours of shutting it down it wouldn't restart. But when the mechanic checked it 4 days later, no problem starting. Any ideals on why that is? is there a hi-temp safety that had to reset after cooling completely off.
