Re: Amel's suggestion to run the Volvo D3-110 (A54) daily while on passage

Hello Kent,

I have an identical SS mixing box.  Last year I rebuilt the unit and found NO flap valve inside.

However, I do not understand why everyone is intent on modifying an effective system (running the engine 1 or 2 times par day) by adding complication to the system....

Kind regards everyone

Kristy (SM243) has a stainless steel mixing "box" instead of a Vetus muffler.  Pic attached.  Is there a flap valve here as well?    If not, can one be added to the exhaust hose?  If that's a bad idea, should I be getting a muffler?

Thanks,
