Still working on it

High wire your comment is right on. There is a white vapor or color to the water coming out of the exhaust. It is on the sea water side. The radiator cap is not on right now it was rusted and I am in the process of finding one.
When I ran it last the water and antifreeze in the radiator was not moving at all, should there be some water movement in there.

Not much to see till the thermostat opens and lets the coolant flow .

Thanks for all the help. It seems my exhaust elbow is getting clogged up.

I had a restriction that cleared up beautifully with Barnacle Buster. I circulated it through the RW components for 4 hrs. My engine temps dropped from 195 F to 165 F on that engine. I'm finishing the other engine tomorrow.

Maybe if can help your engine, too. Only about $75 for a gallon of concentrate - enough for me to do both my engines.
