    Intercooler Leak Aftermath

    Engine was done under warranty, but with the amount of salt water that has been through everything, its up to me to clean the rest of the shit up. 17 hour old boat and the SC that looks like its been in a rental. I am taking the opportunity to make sure driveline is as straight as it can be.

    It's bullshit that I'm even having to do this but people who know me know that this is not acceptable to me and one of the reasons you buy a new boat is to not spanner on it...............well not until you wanna go a bit faster

    Local dealer from what I can tell so far did a pretty good job on the engine rebuild. But really only did the minimum as required under warranty. Look at the paint flaking off the Mag Cover. Theres heavy corrosion everwhere, this is even with it getting washed down after everyride with soap and water and then silicone.

    Brand new replacement Intercooler, not leaking for now, but it will fail like the first one. I'll put money on that. Modified an older driveshaft alignment tool to work with the newer pump. The factory SC Clutch washers still have the tag on them where they're cut out of the sheet. Bit rough. Going to check before it goes back in. 17 hour's, it will be interesting to where the slips at.

    Mark, if you want to skip the disaster and upgrade the intercooler I have a piping setup that will let my F1000 intercooler fit the stock location by adding it to your stock hoses. Let me know if you're interested.

    All the new washers look like that. We have to reset slip a couple times before they take a good set. I don't know how they can't start slipping after 10-20 hours without resetting slip.

    The tab on the clutches are there from the waterjet, so they don't fall off the table when cutting...

    But one would hope they could at least smooth it out afterwards

    Yup. Here's pics of the front of my engine after ride plate fitting failure caused overheat and then immediately after intercooler failure caused another overheat causing paint blister and corrosion. Look closely. I think even the head gasket had a mild fail as the head looks good but the block below it is raw metal. Machine is at the shop right now getting a BRP remanned engine.
