Anyone? I've not heard of MCX/ETX Cats having cooling problems, but this has peaked my interest...

I realise that, just thought it may help someone coming across it as it led nowhere.

Yes, they have had issues for few years(when ETX/CAT was launched), melting holes in exhaust hose, So the came up with a replumb kit to reconfigure your water flow to cool the ETX/CAT's better to solve the issue. Not all have had the problem but many have.



Attached below are the Factor Config. and the Replumb Kit config.

Do not get ripped off by Indmar on they're re-plumb kit.

All you need is two - 1 inch 180 U molded hoses.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

On the Direct Drive you will need about 12ft of heater hose, if you are replacing it all with new.

You would have thought that Indmar would have addressed this issue on all boats but instead they just wait till your exhaust hoses melt some or all the way through while your out on the water, then make you buy a kit to fix. This has happened on many boats with less than 10 hours on them. And Indmar still produced engines without the replumb kit for years after the problem(at least up till 2011). But they recommend, even if you do not have a over heating issue to install the replumb kit.

Its my understanding that the over heating issue can also cause the exhaust manifolds to crack.


Sounds like some Bull^^^^ Indmar

YES, my port side is cracked on my 2011 197 WTT and doesn't have the re-plumb kit, just phoned Mastercraft UK for a quote and some info on re-plumb kit and the conversation went like this, I'm looking for a port side ETX/CAT for 2011 197 and got "A what", an ETX/CAT exhaust for an Indmar MCX I said, "Don't know what you're talking about and wouldn't have parts for a boat that old"..... then asked me to email a picture with hull number for the parts department. Thought I was speaking to the parts department I exclaimed, "No this is parts, the parts department isn't open to the public" Based on that conversation I decided these guys don't know their arse from their elbow so will be ordering direct from the states.

Call Texas Mastercraft 817.288.2628, talk to Melba, Scott or Jeff. Awesome, They know they're stuff and can order you the right part.

If its the whole Manifold,
Part number are 531400HL & 531401HL one is Port, one Starboard.

If it is just the Stainless Steel Dump

Port is Part 585018
Starboard is Part 585017
