    Cooling problem

    We took the engine from a sltx1050 that was wreaked and put the engine and computer into a 2000 Genesis. Using the exhaust from the 2000 1200FIJ and it's not cooling. The 2000 Genesis was missing the computer for the fuelinjection system and the cost to replace it was a lot more than the wreaked 1050. I seem to think it needs the exhaust from the 1050 that came on it as it has more water ports than the fuelinjected. Need ya'll to tell me what to do cause the wife is getting a little testy about not having her ride. Thanks Lynn

    So the engine is overheating ?
    Was the 1200 genesis engine also missing ?

    The cooling system should work the same,do you have the hoses connected properly?
    From the jet pump-hose goes to the exhaust manifold. That supplies the water.

    The 1200 was missing the injectors and computer. If the 1050 sits and idles the heads start getting hot. Does not seen to be getting enough water. We've run the hoses according to the Wondering if we got a clogged hose somewhere. Thanks for your reply. Lynn

    A picture is the only way to tell what you have going on there.

    Service manual digrams show two water ports on the 1050 and the 1200 only shows one. I need to see if the red exhaust will fit in the hull. Sitting in water idling the heads are getting hot quickly. Thanks Lynn

    As far as I know 1050 & 1200 exhaust manifolds are the same. I'd start at the thermostat & then the intake hose (from the pump to the ex. manifold) make sure it didn't get squished under the motor when it went in.
