They should not charge you for their error. Make sure you are using marine head gaskets and not automotive as they have copper in them.

They gave me a head gasket for automotive and told me that if I want another one I have to pay for it my self.
I don't want to argue before they have fixed the valve, if I do the probably will do a bad job replacing it.

I Was reading the service manual for my engine and came across the part where they show a flow trough diagram for closed cooling system, according to mercruiser manual it should be a flow trough opening in the thermostat housing that let's the coolant flow even when the thermostat is closed.
My thermostat housing do not have that flow through passage, is that a problem?

Is the thermostat housing the Merc OEM (open system) or is it one supplied by ORCA for the closed cooling? Some system use a bypass hose that comes off the top of the intake manifold and connects to the engine water pump.

I think It is a housing from Orca, and I have no hose from the intake manifold.

Well if the t-stat housing is from Orca It is probably ok and may have a passage that you just don't see or some t-stats have a pin hole or 2 that allow some water to pass.
