Universal 5416 exhaust riser

I need to change the part on the picture (I believe it is called exhaust riser or something like that):





As you could see it has a hole in the exhaust and it developed when I was transferring my boat between the moorings, so I "fixed" it with duct tape (which was breached as you could see).

What's the best place to buy the replacement part and is it going to be hard to replace myself or I am better of hiring someone to do it? It doesn't look too complicated, there are a couple of bolts that are a bit rusted, but I think should come off without too much trouble. Any caveats/things to look for?

Re: Universal 5416 exhaust riser

Looks like mine! less the soot.. bummer I believe it's made from standard 1-1/4" iron pipe nipples and fittings. There is one difference, on my boat, is in the elbow rather then below the 90 degree elbow like yours, don't think it matters.

Re: Universal 5416 exhaust riser

Called the store, they say it is just a piping system and that any black pipe from hardware store can be used.
They gave me this part:
90 DEGREE WATER INJECTED ELBOW MMD MMD33067 Sailboat Supplies, Engine Parts and Boat Parts

but said it's 1-1/2'' and the exit on the engine is 1-1/4'', so I would need to somehow make a connection.

There is also this part:
Sailboat Supplies, Engine Parts and Boat Parts but i am not sure it will fit.

Re: Universal 5416 exhaust riser

I made up the exhaust riser for the Universal 5411 on my previous boat out of 1 1/4" NPT black iron fitting and nipples from Home Depot. Assume the 5416 is the same size. Made the water injection fitting out of a tee, reducer and nipple to attach the water hose. Total cost of everything was about $30. The second part you show looks like it would work assuming it's 1 1/4" NPT. Looks a lot like what's on your boat.

Re: Universal 5416 exhaust riser

That makes sense. I could use something like

and a reducer to put the water pipe there.

Was it hard to unscrew the old parts?

A tee like that would be ideal. I used a standard tee which was how the boat came from the factory. And getting the old system apart is going to be the tough part of the job. A recprocating saw with a metal cutting blade can cut most of it out. You must unscrew the nipple going into the engine exhaust flange however. Spray with PB Blaster for several days prior to trying.

Re: Universal 5416 exhaust riser

Do you remember the size of the rubber hose that feeds the seawater? Or maybe someone can measure, my boat is several hours away, so I can only measure on the weekends.

Re: Universal 5416 exhaust riser

Use sch 40 pipe. Looks easy to cut and weld one up. Practical Boat Owner said any riser should rise at least 16 inches before any water gets injected. I prefer dry exhuasts . As one diesel mechanic said "If everyone went for dry exhaust and keel cooling, us mechanics would all be out of work."

Re: Universal 5416 exhaust riser

Hose is probably either 1/2 inch or 5/8 inch ID. You'll have to check to see which. You will have trouble finding other than Schedule 40 nipples and fittings.
