As far as inlet you make it the size of the intake on the water pump.
Exhaust(this is muy importante) must be the size of the exhaust outlet.
If your exixting exhaust hose is smaller....DO NOT ATTEMPT TO USE IT....!!!!!
............BTW you can get manuals on eBay on CD.....I paid about $19.00 for mine....It sure beats greasy pages.
Yep! That what I ment by educated guesses. But I have yet found anything about the maximun angle the motor
can set at. My woods are at 12 degrees so it should be OK. most motors state 15 degrees.
What gets me is some of the design decissions, like a sheetmetal oil
pan or the oil
drain system, where you have to pull the dipstick tube and then have to replace the copper gaskets.
They also have a plug
in the side of the block where it looks like a shorter dip stick could go but they use this long ass stick that would be hard to pull out in a tight space.
And to put in a vented loop between the heat exchanger
and the exhaust mixer is so tight (about 2") they should have built in a system that could be attached easily. They are not even in line. I'll post a picture later.
If'n I'd known about all this BS I would have considered a different make.
It seems one has to carry lots
of extra parts
if your going off shore for any amount of time. They should come up with a 100 hour, 500 hour and 1000 hour kits that one can just buy and carry along, like with air compressors.
Hummm! Maybe I should start selling them?
The part that really gets me is the supplied hand crank oil discharge pump with no instructions on how to hook it up or even a fitting to hook it up, I assume at the dipstick fitting. But how without spilling a bunch of oil?
As they say "Necessity is the Mother of Invention".
