Hi, are you still planing to run the exaust out the side ?
Have not decided yet. Probably not, based on the other comments on the thread. I am also putting off the repower for another year. I pulled my head and found 1 water passage completely blocked, and the others around 1/4 blocked. After cleaning them out and having the valves ground, my overheating problem is gone. Wish I had done it a couple years ago!
