Thanks for Heads up JR, no Pun intended. found, and got an almost brand new lookin manifold on ebay, guy in central florida had one. Cheap too.
Just waiting on Gaskets from E Toledo Honda. Leaving for lobster season open in the Keys wed, but this ski won't be making the trip. So it will be sitting
for a week til I get back.
BTW, since it will be sitting waiting for my return.
Question, I have got some Sea Foam, and cheap 5-40 oil to run through the motor to deal with the moisture and water in the motor.
Have drained it and wondering if this will take care of the water entering the engine. I will of course be changing it again, once I have it back
together, with a new filter and synthetic.

Be sure to look at your oil lines under the engine while you have it lifted up, they corrode quickly.

I just ordered a spare manifold off of ebay and a set of oil lines to keep as hot-spares since only 2 of my 3 maifolds have been replaced so far.

started back at the fix it project today.....Sprayed some PB down into the spark plugs holes, and lo and be hold, it's coming out where the head meets the block! Damn! Looks like I am going to have to update my parts list with Toledo Honda again. JR, guess i will need to be looking into your friend to get the tools to remove the cams and head. Any advice on the removeal and re install you can give would be greatly appreciated. thanks
