  • Pinhole Leak

    I found a small pinhole leak in my aluminum exhaust manifold today.
    This can be welded, right? Also, would it hurt the engine if I ran it like this until I could get it fixed? I think not, but I've been wrong before!

      I wouldn't think it would hurt anything with that being the end of the line for the raw water before it leaves the boat.

        Looks serious Shep. Drop that boat off at my house and you can pick it up this fall, fixed of course.

          That's pretty much what I figured. I thought I'd give someone the opportunity to come on here and say "Don't do it man!"
          I suppose it would be a pretty easy fix for an experienced welder of aluminum thingies....

            Thanks jr, but I can slap a wad of chewing gum on there as easy as you.

              Radiator repair shop.

              They can patch that with aluminum solder rod, easy. Its just like repairing a radiator fin.

                I would have thought those manifolds were thicker than that. Is that a dent in the aluminum or was that the way it was cast.

                      They were cast that way. The other one has the exact same bumps. Now, I can't account for the scratches all over them though. They were there when I bought it.
