Siphon between heat exchanger and mixing elbow?

Looks like I need to replace the siphon between my heat exchanger and mixing elbow. Any suggestions on what to replace it with?

Engine is a Universal M50, 44hp. Hose coming out of the heat exchanger is, I think, 3/4"?

Any ideas, anyone?

Thanks - jballou

Re: Siphon between heat exchanger and mixing elbow?

The previous owner of my boat created a siphon break from household pvc fittings and threaded the anti siphon valve to the top of it. While this setup worked fine for many years, I just replaced it with one made from Marelon. I researched it a bit and while a few people prefer a bronze fitting many use Marelon. I got mine from WM.
