Customer Question

We just returned from a sea trial on a boat with C-12s. I was not able to operate at WOT for more than 3 min. as it would overheat.
The heat exchanger was just "rodded out" i think that it needs to be pulled and really cleaned.
Any suggestions?

Hello,Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to assist you with your concern today. I have not heard of rodding out in a long time. The heat exchanger should be checked as well as the rest of the system, you also will need to check the raw water side of the cooling system for problems including flow, restriction and the pump, etc. Thank you!- JoePlease rate my answer when ready.
