WanderingStar is on a distinguished road
Your suspicions are correct. I removed the exhaust elbow today, it's blocked. I have a seperate side discharge hose, water flows from it nicely when I poen that valve. The injection elbow is simply made of galvanized pipe fittings, I should be able to assemble a new one at the hadware store. I'll clean the old one and keep it as a spare. Of course, it took some thought and parts gyration to remove. I managed to break the adjacent fuel return line. Then a starling crapped right down the back of my neck. (I have a deck hatch to the engine space) I guess that's good luck (both).
