    Re: New manifolds/risers leaking?

    Interesting, I’m putting on new elbows and manifolds now. Everything came apart nicely. 2 manifolds and 1 elbow have uneven surfaces on the water side. Looks like I may be getting replacements...

    Re: Elbows / Manifolds '94 454 XL's

    Hi, these two diagrams are in my manual. From looking at the FWC page, does it look like i'm 'full' FWC? Not sure how much it matters, but be nice to know.

    thx

    Re: Elbows / Manifolds '94 454 XL's

    Hi, so how do I know? I've always called it FWC. I know its not raw water cooled. Also, looks like i have 3" of clearance so the taller elbows should work.

    Re: Elbows / Manifolds '94 454 XL's

    Thanks guys for the info! Mulletwagon, that's very informative. I'm a little handy lol, so I'll most likely have someone do these for me. I'll probably be his helper. He did my fuel pump switch...

    Re: Starting 454 XL's

    Thanks. Somehow the port started right up today. And we traced stbd to look like it's the fuel pump pressure switch. Power goes in but not out. So I'll probabaly swap both out on each engine. Stay...
