Reducing oil content is foolish.I had a friend who accidently reduced his mix on his 1988 50 Evinrude. It ran almost the whole season with no effect but it cost him $800 when it finally started to show.Your saying its ok to run something like 2.6 ozs where 8 ozs is recomended
doesn`t sound safe to me.As far as holing a block you don`t need much hp to do that.Basic rules of inertia apply at 4,000 rpm whether its 4 hp or 4,000 hp.
