an old exhaust trick heat the stud,and take a candle put it on the edge of the stud and let the heat draw the wax into the threads, if done correctly ,it will come out as easy as can be.

This is the absolute best way you get some Kroil put it on as much as you can het the stud with a pencil torch lighter put more Kroil on it if you are careful enough with the lighter you will see the Kroil going right up into the threads that stud will unscrew with a pair of needle nose pliers. Ask me how I know this trick. IT WORKS.
Well i had billy kline fix my broken exhaust stud and a new rear seal great guy all I can say so last night I took the boat out it had a problem ideling so i took it out to see if it would clear up no luck ran fine at regular speed well i shut it off disconnected the water seperator n it cleared up after a few i frogged til 4:00a.m fine no problems started to head back to landing and lost power would not go past 1800 rpm could this be carb related or mags n plugs n wires never have been changed either

Yeah sounds like the problem is when you disconnected that water seperater the water just went straight to the carb
No water in my gas tank i drained and cleaned it out. Before i left but did not replace the water separator thats why i bye past it out in the swamp n drained the carb bowl and when i started it up after sitting the fuel line straight from fuel pump was put in a gallon can to prevent trash pickup
