Manifolds are infamous for clogging up and replacement.

Re: mercruiser overheating - impeller good ??

Did you replace the raw water impeller or did you put the old one back in? Always replace it. You go through a lot of effort just to get to it. Visually it can look good but now be bad.

Your exhaust passages appear to be to the point where they need to be replaced. That is a lot of corrosion.
