    slx 1200 exhaust leak

    screws loosend on the stinger?(4 screws, between the exhaust and manifold), water was spitting out everywhere. does this just happen or did something cause it, can there be water in the engine, tightened the screws and ran it for about 20mins after, still seemed kinda loud, but at least there was water coming out anymore. I installed a jet works valve, arrow pointing to the back.

    So the four big bolts that connect the exhaust pipe to the exhaust manifold?

    If its leaking there, your exhaust gasket is probably shot, or the screws just loosened up. Make sure to check the gasket, I have blown them before.

    Definitely take the plugs out and turn er over to make sure there is no water in the engine. There probably isnt as long as your flame arrestors were on...dont know why they would be off...still should check though.

    thanks for the quick reply, yes the four big bolts that connect the exhaust pipe to the exhaust manifold. I took the spark plugs out right away, only turned it over for maybe 5-10 seconds, nothing came up. when i tightened, the screws back up, no water spit out, but it seemed louder then usual. so ill look at the gasket when i get a chance.

    Yeppp yeepp yeppp...forgot about that, make sure to check that the other bolts are tight, I had one of those bolts hiding in the bottom of my hull for two years.
