Customer Question

Good afternoon tan, I have a 1996 alpha one, issue I believe with water circulation on the port side. Riser was extremely hot and starting getting some smoke around the exhaust seal (just below) . Also started to hear an intermittent popping sound. Shut it sown, got towed in, now in the driveway

Hello.When was the last time you had the water pump in the drive serviced? What was the temp reading on the temp gauge?Did the over heat alarm ever go off? How did the water passages look in the manifold and riser?
