Seems we have a problem
One of my friends that knows nothing about boats put my risers on for me
well needless to say he never used a cookie pad to clean off the surfaces of the manifold and the riser before putting gaskets on and #5 cylinder sucked water while trying to get it fired up
I dont think I bent a rod or anything but when I pulled the oil out, what a mess
yoohoo all over again
nice, brand new engine that has never even been fired up before destroyed from something this dumb.
This is why I dont like anyone messin with my stuff but my friends are really trying to help me out and get this thing running.
I love the help but at this point, stick a fork in it, it is done I think?
Going to get new riser gaskets and take all the risers off and sand all the manifolds and risers down with a gasket remover pad.
Now Like I said this engine that got water in it has never fired up before, just the starter was turning it and it injested water into the exhaust manifold.
So im at a loss, I dont know what to do at this point?
fill the whole damn thing or what?
