A member on our site posted 2 sets for sale, don't know if he wants to split the pairs though. Worse thing he could say is no I guess.

If you melted it I would think that you ran it dry. Look for blockage in the water lines that go to that manifold. Do you drain your manifolds on a regular basis?

Drains are not even accessable. It looks like I might have gotten some seaweed or something that plugged up the left bank. I didnt find anything and the pump is running strong but the whole left bank overheated to the point of melting the runners out of the manifold and flooding the engine. The right bank is fine. My riser and pipes have 1/4" of melted aluminum in them. So far it looks like the engine survived but this is the one getting done this winter anyway. I was out of the water alot and running way WOT so who nows.
