I tried to do a temporary patch on the corroded joint yesterday. It didn't help, infact I get some seawater splashing out through the break. Upon dismantling the assembly I saw the mixing elbow has lots of broken rusted pieces. Looks like I have to replacement the whole assembly. I doubt I can clean the elbows thread enough to put in the joint and also the mixing elbow might have be busted as well. Ironically, some 3 weeks back, I read on this forum, someone mentioned the mxing elbow has about 5 years life and I told myself, glad mine is still good....sharks! Now I gonna to put in a planned yearly maintenance on exhaust and mixing elbows and I'm telling my sailing buddies who has similiar engine to mine.
