Here's my problem, I run my motor w/ muffs on and all is good. I put it in the water(ocean)and she kept dying. I noticed exhaust fumes coming out from top cover. I took off the cover and she purrs. so I inspected and I see the rubber exhaust boot(pee hole) was not connected, by that I mean it looks connected to the engine but not the 2 exhaust/ pee holes. Is there a way to reconnect it. I see the big snap ring on one side but what goes on the other side. I hope 12 Footer can help me. Also is it normal for water to be in motor leg housing/cover?
