I recently bought an 80's yacht that has a DV24ME engine in it. I'm gradually getting to know the boat and its systems. After repairing a wet exhaust leak I was hoping there would be less engine odor in the cabin when the engine was running. It is certainly better than it was, but not as good as I was hoping. While inspecting the engine on a weekend away (to check up on the exhaust repair and the stuffing box repack I did), I found the air filter was blowing out warm air from the end of the air filter assembly (see picture). Is this normal? I expected it to be drawing air IN, not the other way around! Is there an air intake elsewhere?
