I have been dealing with a heat problem on my boat. Now i notice that the elbow coming off the manifold on one side is hotter than the one on the other side. However the manifold themsilfs feel the same temp.. Just the elbow is hotter.. i plan to pull it off tomorrow for further inspection. Just wondering if anyone has plugged one of these elbows before??

do you ride in salt water?

When you pull of the riser make, check the gasket, the rear water hole should be plugged up by the gasket and the front one open. I asked the head guy at PCM why this was so and he said that if the rear water opening wasn't plugged there wouldn't be enough water going through the riser to cool it.
If you look at the water path through the riser you'll see what I mean and it totally makes sense. Since both ther exhaust and risers are symetrical it makes sense to have to block the rear holes via the gaskets.

Make sure that they are clear. We had the same problem last year and one exhaust didn't get much water through it. It seemed that the inside was all rusty. Clear them and protect them (inside & outside) and it should be fine.

Protect them how, with what?

RE: the plugged passage...I believe that's only PCM. Other brands are likely different.

At the outside with paint (heat and petrol resist). For the inside you should clean them really good (shake them, hammer them, compressed air, compressed water) so that all lose rust and iron are gone. Then you can treat the inside with some goods (paint or anti rust). I don't know if we still have the stuff but I will take a look what it is precisely. Or ask you're boat dealer.
