MCX help

Went to park my new (to me) boat on the lift for the first time and got almost there and heard "ppssssssssss" from the motor.

Any idea where I can get a metal one of these -- apparently someone rigged this with a plastic one and it melted.

Also any idea what would cause it to blow/melt other than just being a cheap repair that I'm certain the lot mechanic rigged it with before we purchased.

Thanks.

You have to give us more to go on. More context, w shot a bit further out so we can see where on the engine. I have an MCX and have never seen one of those before.

It looks like it is just a pipe thread to barbed nipple 90...... Hardware store should be able to set you right up with a brass one, which would work perfect.

If this is a cross over hose in the manifold I would not dismiss if this is melted off.. You could have a sticking thermostat... I have had 2 boats that melted these off both sides and had a bad thermo in both.. I would run the boat a little more and keep an eye on the temp. this is just a precautionary ... There is a reason why these are plastic not metal.

Again I apologize for not having better pictures, I can't get them to upload for some reason. Will try tomorrow from work computer. It is the hose going into the manifold. Replaced today with copper 90 degree piece.

Something still definitely wrong. Causing the hose to swell and probably would have burst if I didn't cut off engine. Any ideas will help, but my gut is that the water pump is not working properly, and its not pumping enough water into the engine causing it to overheat (although thermostat never shoots above 160.

Hoping it isn't a disaster to fix. any tips will be appreciated and I will post updates.
