Sherman, my name is***** you talking about the copper water tube in the middle section, did that snap off?

At the top.

That's no good. LItterally everything needs to come apart. The powerhead needs to come off, then the oil pan, and finally the exhaust manifold needs to get pulled out of the middle section. This is easily 8+ hours worth of work. Is this something you wanted to get into yourself?

I am a commercial boat that needs to run tomorrow. If you were near by I'd hire you.

I don't think this is something I can help you with. I will opt out. Good luck.
