If you again have water in your engine, has your manifolds and riser been checked?

We're all good now. It is water under the Bridge so to speak. Originally my manifolds and risers were 5 years old when I had the problem. I boat in salt water but my marina is 9 miles up a river. So failure although not really determined because I chose to replace engine and all parts anyway was premature. Remember the people who replaced my bellows were the same people that replaced the engine. Where I was coming from was more in the lines did their actions in any way cause the water in engine issue.

I could be wrong but I would think water in the engine would come from the risers or a blown head gasket or both but not from an exausht bellows

I would tend to think that water in the oil would be a faulty head gasket as i have seen this at work on cars, and have replaced a few in my time. If it does happen again, get yourself one of these...

I use it at work and it can confirm or eliminate the head gaskets as a point of failure

Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but always enough to do it right the second time.

The boat is fixed. When I replaced the engine I also changed the manifolds and risers. I was more interested in possible causes. I got a vague answer on the manifold being the cause (my problem my expense ) Failed bellows ( Their problem their expense )
