After inquiring here on sailnet and being warned my engine would turn into a nuclear reactor without the exhaust manifold water jacket I wound up bypassing the manifold jacket entirely (corrosion blocks the internal passages backing everything up resulting in engine overheating) and so far it's never glowed red or set the 'glass deck above it on fire.....but sure, I'd like to replace it and have it work as it should, but $500? smh
