Thanks Macklin - we'll see what the verdict is.

Obviously I am not in a good mood! Headers pressure checked fine! So I have either a blown head gasket, cracked head or cracked block. Any ideas?

Boat is now in NC and in the hands of Joey Griffin. I hope the Heck it is a head gasket!!!
Sorry

I've seen the 575 SCI intake manifolds rotted pretty bad. I'd be looking there.

Good luck,

Kurt

Good luck,

If they were rotted, wouldn't ALL cylinders get water? I also had brand new ones installed when motors were rebuilt in '05. The mating surface of old ones was corroded a little.
Oh, and there is some water in oil. Noticed oil level was about 1 quart over full, still looked good though. But on the bottom of the oil fill caps on valve covers - milkshake!

Bill, while one would assume only one problem; make sure you give the oil cooler a really good check as well.

There is a guy in Fort Lauderdale that repairs them, I thinks it's around $500.00??? That's what he charged a friend. I can get the name or number if you need it?

I had the same problem, only worse. A head, Dart Iron Eagle, cracked in half sideways, less than 10 hours on a 540. When Dart was notified, they said it was an issue with marine engines and gave me two new aluminum Pro1's. Over $5,000 worth of damage and port work I was out of luck on.

Motor is out of boat - crossing fingers for a simple / easy fix.

Sorry to hear about your bad luck.

I assume you had planned to do the rendezvouz.....

Dart did the same thing for my friend a couple years ago.....

Luckilly his engine just filled up with water and didn't wipe out any other parts...
