I just spoke with a local mechanic who said he worked on a 2005 Suzuki 140 last year with identical issues. He took that engine apart per owner's request and found the cylinder wall on cylinder 3 to be corroded beyond repair. Water was coming in cylinder side wall...interesting...with age and saltwater, anything can happen! I could be experiencing something similar with my cylinder #2 at 170 psi. Moving forward, I won't be keeping any engine beyond 12 years from now on. I really think it's an age thing and not the number of hours on an engine.
