    Water Lock Muffler Question

    Newbie here. Just picked up my first skis. I have a 1990 WRA650D WR3. On the water lock, it looks like it is a 2 piece set up. Is the top supposed to come off? or is it supposed to be sealed or epoxied?
    When I took it to the lake Sunday, I started it up and let it idle with the engine cowl open. I noticed a little bit of water spitting out from the seam where the top and bottom are connected. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    The top. is sealed to the body. If it is leaking water at idle it will leak exhaust gas at open throttle. It is under a fair amount of pressure when the engine is running hard. It needs to be replaced, it can't be repaired. First ski I owned had the same problem, bought one off ebay, can't remember what I paid for it....it wasn't too much though

    Thanks!! I thought it was supposed to be a sealed unit. I'll start looking around.
    Does anyone know if there is an aftermarket one out there available? I know the factory one is long discontinued.

    If it's not cracked it can be repaired. Pull it out, take the top off, clean thoroughly, rough the mating surfaces up some, take it to any body shop and have them glue it together with a panel bond adhesive. Good to go.

    Thanks for the advice! I'll definitely try that while I'm trying to locate one.
