Volvo Penta 2030 exhaust elbow

Hi all, I have a 1996 M2030b fitted to my Westerly Ocean ranger. Recently I've helped a couple of guys fix 2030 problems with cooling issues caused by blocked exhaust elbows, looks to me like a corrosion issue where the small salt water pipe which injects into the exhaust elbow just blocks completely. Both theirs were 2030s but an older vintage. I have a much larger elbow casting and was wondering if anyone has had problems with this style of casting. I was also wondering whether to just bite the bullet and remove it for inspection. Any thoughts or advice?
