Made a cheeky visit to Brother Jack as it was my wifes birthday last week and she wanted dinner at Rick Steins’…. (Its a Malay thing)…
We gave the engine a run and the cabin a good airing. After about an hour I wondered why the exhaust wasnt splurting so much, so opened the engine bay only to find it half full of water!!
Well I killed the engine and then started to pump for my life to empty it before any serious damage to the engine.
The culprit was my own heavy handedness when I reassembled the heat exchanger.
So I will leave this here as a reminder not to over torque the bronze bolts on the heat exchanger bell housings!
Suffice to say new heat exchanger bolts and o rings now on order as well a new sacrificial anode.
Happy Boat Owning 🙂
