  6. Re: Exhaust Manifold water elbow broken off in the manifold

    The plastic elbow is soft. The cast iron manifold is hard. Use heat, scrapers, taps, or whatever means that gives you the most destructive pleasure. It's best if you remove the manifold and get it on...

  15. Re: Mercruiser 7.4 Litre Bravo engine starts and runs fine on open water but stalls after
