Sure would have been better off with a block of gasket and a hose.

Hard to belive that saltwater can do this in 5 years time.

Ya I know. Just sucks that it took them 15+ years to figure something that simple out. Guess it is like the water presure relife unit or the anti vapor lock on the EFI motors. At least I new they were leaking and got new parts to fix the problem. but what about the poor uniformed peep's that drive them tell it drops a valve?
