Quick Hlep--Head Gasket
quick question. I over heated yesterday and think I had my head gasket on wrong.
This gasket does not have any marking (ie UP or EX) to reference. All I can tell is that there around all the holes, there is an indention. Does the hump go up or down

See the arrow pointing to the shark fin? That should be positioned at the water outlet of the head. The head in the pic would be positioned properly if placed as is over the gasket with the fin positioned as is.

I do not think that a improperly installed head gasket would cause it to overheat. I would look at the thermostat,,,,

Ended up that I injested a 6' piece of tubing around my drive shaft, was blocking the water pick up. GD litterbugs, these idiots have nothing better to do than sit around fishing all day and throwing their crap intot he lake.

At least you found the problem before anything bad happened.

I've sucked up a piece of wood before, maybe take the time to check the rest of the cooling passages.
Mine splintered and also plugged the orifice at the exhaust pipe for cooling the stinger hose.
