Exhaust elbow gasket differences
As part of my spring commissioning, I pulled the elbows to check their condition, looks like to starboard side were replaced in the recently.
The port shows some pitting, so they are going to get new ones before splash day.
The gaskets I ordered have 4 rectangle water passages but the new ones I removed from the starboard had 2 rectangles at 12 and 6 with small round holes at the 9 and 3 locations.
I had no overheating with either side and no water intrusion yet.
These are wet elbows, someone please educate me on these two different styles of gaskets, is one better that the other?
