Water Ingestion


1994 (MD) - 1998 (BY) 4.3 Litre

In some applications where the suggested static water line is marginal, or the characteristics of the boat cause it to ride deep in the water, additional precautions to prevent water ingestion will need to be taken.

An Exhaust Elbow Kit, P/N 3857952. has been designed to help prevent the engine from ingesting water through the exhaust system when these marginal conditions exist. This is accomplished by a vacuum sensitive valve "a" threaded into each high rise elbow. During times of high vacuum in the exhaust manifolds, the valves will open allowing air from inside the engine compartment to break the vacuum.

This kit does not guarantee that water will not penetrate the engine through the exhaust, but lessens the possibility.
