Volvo Penta Silencer

Hi all,

I have found corrosion by the outlet of the silencer on my Volvo Penta D2-55D (photo attached). Is this common? Any thoughts? Fortunately not leaking yet.

Looks like itís leaking to me, probably past the hose clamps on the muffler outlet. Maybe try a sealant between the hose and the outlet pipe.

Mine looked just like that, ended up being a rotted end cap, but I had a spare. A mechanic I know in La Paz made a mold of one and now makes inexpensive replacements from fiberglass that last quite well.

You sold Kanga!?
We still have those LED Solar holders you made and gave out to many at Marina Palmira. Cheers!
