So new pump is in.. going out tomorrow...
Sure looks a lot better. Did it solve the overheating issue?
well damn.. super disappointed... zero change in performance...
Refer to post 21-24
What's your engine number ? The hose configuration looks a bit strange to me.
Open cooling system usually has a feed hose at the bottom of the exhaust manifold and all water exits the elbow.
i did do the flow test somewhat.. i left the hose off the distribution on bottom, started up and it appeared to flow a good amount of water... didnt capture to measure but appeared would meet the 7.5 qts/ 15 sec or close to with flush ears and hose...
from the outdrive to the raw pump... not connected to pump, with flush ears on hose, flows a lot of water...
thinking the block is full of crap...
You have to time it. There's no way to know without quantifying it. It may be good - but a test is a test is a test. There's no way for us to help without facts. This is a variable that needs to be established/eliminated.
Happy's not offering up his engine number..... so.. Thinking his open cooled system may have that T restrictor in the mix that will hold the water in his block longer, maybe something's up with that if his system even has one.
Too busy with important stuff I guess.
lol you guys funny...
yes i had to take a break from the cooling challenge and make myself happy with some audio work...
plus had a wedding, other family stuff, its on a trailer so to do the test right i need to be in the water
where do i find my engine number... i am happy to provide for additional support
spending this weekend out on it having fun on the hook fri and sat, i pay too much not to do so and its not critical
in a few weeks i plan on taking a few days off and dedicating to a resolution before the water gets hot down here... will try and do water flow test prior but probably pull everything (again) and clean/flush..
i do appreciate all the assistance and support, you guys are great!! I LOVE my boat!
On a metal plate above the starter. If your model has a distribution housing there should be a T fitting on the vertical water line, that has a restrictor in it, to direct more water through the block.
