    Coolant shooting out overflow ..hmm my coolant lines look wrong no?

    Picked up this RXP back in the Spring, after hard runs the coolant has been coming out the overflow tube. I do see black speckles in the coolant, I was sure my head gasket is gone and planned to change it next week.

    I just went and checked the coolant lines, unless I'm wrong my oil cooler and reservoir bottle lines are reversed.

    Look past the corrosion residue, previous salt water ski, and check out the hoses on the thermostat. The one towards the rear of the ski is going to the coolant bottle, the one towards the front to the oil cooler. Aren't these backwards?
