where the exhaust exhaust elbow is close to orwill be below the vessels waterline provisions must be made to install a siphonbreakin the raw water supply hose to the exhaust elbow This hose must be looped a minimum of 20 in 51 cm above the vessels waterline Failure to use a the exhaust manifold injection port is at or below the load waterline will resultin raw water damage to the engine and possible flooding of the boatIf you have any doubt about the position of the waterinjected exhaust elbow relative tothe vessels waterline under any of the vessels various operating conditions or whenthe vessel is not underway install a siphonbreak This precaution is necessary to protect your engineNOTE A siphonbreak requires periodic inspection and cleaning to ensure proper operation Failure to properly maintain a siphonbreak can result in catastrophic enginedamage Consult the siphonbreak manufacturer for a proper maintenance SYSTEMThe exhaust hose must be certified for marine use The

lubricating system is a pressure feeding system using an oil pump The engine oil is drawn from the oil sump by the oil pump which drives the oil under pressure through the various lubricating points in the engine The oil then returns to the oil sump to repeat the continuous cycle The geardriven oil pump is built into the oil sump The oil is pumped through a spinon type oil filter Model IIAI only
