I have had a few questions about my outboard regarding “exhaust manifold corrosion”.
In response, I asked
the folks at Blackbarry Marine in Southport about it.
Here is their experience with this:
About 75% of the cases they had worked on involved motors that were berthed in a slip; motor sat in the water all the time.
To do a complete inspection involves motor breakdown and around $1000.00 or more to complete.
Another method to inspect is to remove the lower unit and inspect visible portions of the exhaust manifold.
Motors that are having this issue will usually exhibit increased blowby and smoking of the exhaust.
To investigate I choose to have the lower unit removed and visual inspection. This was completed on
11-03-14 at Blackbarry Marine in Southport, NC.
The results are: “There are no signs of pitting, only normal wear for a motor of 1235 hours”. This motor has never exhibited any signs of smoking or blow-back.
The total days that this motor has been immersed in water is 9 days since March of 2002, when I bought the boat as the original owner.
Therefore, I have no indications of unusual exhaust manifold corrosion as has been the case with some other Yamaha 4-stroke outboards.
I have the Yamaha computer print out that shows the motor had 1235 hours on 11-03-14.
The motor was also checked for proper voltage; the motor is producing proper voltage.
