I have a Bukh
DV36 3 cyl raw water
, at my last anode change I was supplied with a new anode which turned out to be too long. The anode subsequently broke up when I screwed it in, the pieces have now partially plugged the cooling
section of the exhaust
manifold. Through the anode plug
hole I could feel the broken bits and was able to remove some of them but i fear that the majority remain. I have tried freshwater flushing
(in both directions) to no avail. Vinegar soaks ( 3 over 3 nights) did not help.
I had read that RYDLYME will dissolve zinc anodes. Has anyone tried this? or any other suggestions Apart from removing the exhaust
manifold I can see no other way forward.
