Salt residue under engine cowling 60HP E-Tec

[ Edited ]

Hi all, I have recently noticed residual salt residue around the sealing face of a component on the engine and wonder if anyone can shed some light on what the component is, and if you had the same issue what was the cause? leaking gasket etc. It is a 2013 60HP with 26 hours on it. The area affected is highlighted in red and the engine gets a thorough flush after each use. Thanks, Andrew20161210_144529.jpeg

that is the pressure relief valve commonly called a "blow off" valve. It consists of a spring, diaphragm, o-ring, grommet, and the valve stem.

 

I assume that the motor is under warranty and your dealer should easlily take care of it.

Hi Bill,

 

Thanks for the quick reply, I'm not familiar with that part but will look into it further. Is it common for them to leak around the area or is it likely we have a stuck valve?

If your motor is in warranty, have your dealer fix the seepage. Salt buildup probably worked its way under the o-ring groove.
