    Saw small drops of water when I bought it. Took it out 3 times perfect. Lost power and excessive noise last time out. Pulled riser and exhaust starboard side. Thunder EMI’s. Can I soak these in CLR, lacquer thinner or what instead of replacing?

    A good soaking in $100 bills should do it!

    You may have to rebuild that engine since it ingested water.
