Finished installing my replacement engine. I used the outlet system which was installed originally.
This is the one with the big brass silencer with the bulky brass tube, going from exhaustmanifold underneath the silencer.
How Ifound out that water was flowing back to the cylinderhead? One of the sealings was leaking some wet dirty water!!! I took away the exhaustmanifold to solve the problem and found the water pouring out of the cylinderhead openings. Starting the engine gave a good dirty shower and cleaned it out.
Possibly this problem ruined my old engine, once had a waterlock while starting!!!
In my opinion the silencer is defective or the original design was not to good. Maybe special, engine stop, procedure required?
I looked into the silencer through the short pipe which goes to the rubber tube, but could not see much. I noticed a piece that looked ripped off at the beginning of this tube.
Questions: Is anyone familiar with this silencer? Are there drawings of this silencer available?
Any suggestions to solve this problem are very welcome.
