Warranty is up. Check the exhaust
mixer to see if it is leaking. Also do you see any salt
in the bottom of the enclosure? If you do then you have a rotting Exhaust
mixer. Mine actually blew apart in the Exumas
(the can broke away at the weld to the pipe that goes to the exhaust on the engine). You don't want that to happen because you will introduce salt water
into the cylinder and blow the motor
, which is what happened to me. I had to pull the motor
and send it back to NextGen to have it rebuilt ($1200!!). To replace the exhaust mixer is pretty easy, you can buy a new one from NextGen for around $400, don't wait if it is rusting. Also how are your zincs, I find I'm replacing it every 3 months.
