    thats not the cause, he overheated the engine some how. Guys are running huge HP engines WOT all day as myself never had an issue. Overheating most likely caused the crack. This engine gets plenty of cooling. We actually take some cooling away on certain parts;0)
    Put it back together he should be fine. Make sure he doesnt clog up with sea weed! Is he flushing with the hose correctly?

    He's the type that once I fix it up they leave It beached behind there house or what ever. Never drain water out of the hual till like he saw it on the 4th it was up to the batt which is a suprize he took the seats off to look inside cause they never do.. Just trying to make it buliet proof I guess lol iv just heard people adding extra lines sometimes...

    Not trying to sound lime an asshole or anything so dont take this the wrong way but if your friend is not going to treat it any better than that its just a matter of time before something else is wrong with it..A little care goes a long way.
