WI states they have to be 3" high MIN and spaces need to be 2" or something like that. I think the spacing is under that, but I doubt they are going to hassle me for that.

Funny thing is I checked it last fall when we bought it. It looked perfect! I got all paranoid when the temp sender shorted out and it did feel a bit warm on the risers. Engine temp dummy light does work and never lit up.

I wonder were all the chunks went? Hopefully out the exhaust.

You should pull the hoses off. You probably have some pieces on or worse yet jammed in the thermostat, and could be some in the out side of the raw water pump. Happened to me. Had to remove all hoses. Not fun.

I would suspect that if the chunks were causing issues, I would have hotter than normal risers or temp gauge. Neither is the case. I don't know how concerned I should be?

Cool, thanks for the offer. Where are you located?

The goal now is to just find time to enjoy it

I did buy a new steering cable and packing rope. Both are not pressing right now.
