Mercruiser Water Distribution Housing
1 Attachment(s)
The housing cracked when I removed the little blue drain plug in the fall...just found out they cost $170+ to replace!...anyone happen to have one laying around they would sell at a decent price before I bite the bullet?...I hate to do it but I also thought about trying some two-part plastic weld...

I have the air actuated style...863444T 2 but I'd put the manual drain style on.

**TAKE NOTE**...don't make the same mistake I likely did and over-tighten those plastic blue plugs...

Made the same mistake last year. Expensive lesson learned.

At least it's not $1000...Bust Out Another Thousand...get a new one or you could get a really big bill.

haha...very true! Yaaa I don't think I could actually go through with the "jerry-rig"!

Seen many of them "jerry-rigged" over the years winterizing them. Probably split right down the ridge on the bottom side of the plug hole. People have said it's been that way for years and kept working. If it was mine I would get a new one.

$170!!! All I can say is shame on Mercruiser.

Did the same thing a few years back (over tighten) They were 140.00 then! I thought that was crazy! Get a new one and someone with small hands to replace it, i couldn't do it! Had to have my small handed buddy do it! Ha ha
