Leak Around Exhaust Hose
Hi. I recently discovered a small amount of water in the bilge under the engine. Found a small leak where the exhaust hose fits on the elbow exhaust/raw water exit mixer on my sea water cooled Yanmar 2GM.
I am assuming this is just a case of the hose clamp not being tight enough and plan to fix it assuming as much, but I am rather inexperienced when it comes to these thnings and was wondering: is there something else i should be worried about e.g. is this a symptom of increased back pressure because of some crap further down the exhaust hose?
I have a raw water strainer and normal water flow is seen coming out the exhaust.
thanks in advance
