good luck
The Universal engines have no alarm as standard. There is a low oil pressure warning light, and that's it., unless someone added an aftermarket alarm.

Re: No Exhaust Water

After a week long family reunion, I'm back and now have water coming out the exhaust and cooling the engine! Just returned from a beautiful sail and feeling back in love with the boat. After replacing impellers and hoses ect. I had discovered that my biggest problem was restricted flow from my intake seacock which was unrelated to my initial problem. I tried reaming it out with but a 90 degree connector made it tough from above and my lungs couldn't sustain me long enough below.

I ran a hose from my head's seacock to my strainer and viola plenty of water coming out the exhaust to cool. Maybe it was fortuitous that I forgot to open the seacock because I might not have discovered this restriction. Now I've got. To get my temp gauge working.

I also changed the oil and filter. Thanks for the help and encouragement.

Re: No Exhaust Water

Having just st contact had my engine overheat because the pump impeller central hub lost contact with the blades PLUS the temperature sender previously been broken, I can tell you that your exhaust hose after the injection elbow melted the inside lining without deforming the outside PLUS my water lift box melted on the inlet.

GOOD LUCK - an expensive mistake for us both.

I'm all fixed up and was very lucky dollar wise. My water lift box is mettle and continues to function well. I had been told that my exhaust hose would be melted but when I took it off it looked fine but I replaced it anyway. The total cost was about 16 hours of my "free" labor(I teach and have my summers off) and $30 in parts. I'm chalking this one up as a relatively cheap learning experience. Hope you're back with power.
