    Had a small line burst on my 2001 Merc 40. It's on the starboard side, appears to be plastic with metal fitting that goes into the block. Hard to see in a pic, under the wiring harness just to the rear of the starter. Any ideas on what I'm looking at? boat2.jpg

    Ummm, don't know what you're looking at but I'm looking at the motor.

    Can't tell from the photo or the description.
    Anything coming OUT of that burst line? ....that should provide a clue.

    How's that fish prepared?

    Thanks for the replies, I knew the pic was lacking but was impossible to get better one. It's a bleed line. Dropped it off today, pick it up tomorrow.

    Good to know that it wasn't high dollar major. I'd say that if the cowling wasn't on, the bucket caused your problems.
