    WFO- How are you keeping the bottom hose (to the stealth fitting) away form the shaft ? My dumb a$$ ran that hose underneath the exhaust boot and it is a pain to work with whenever I have to get the pipe out.

    Just turn the fitting coming out of the bottom of the pipe, and run it over the int shaft cover.

    True. If you point the fitting the the right position, it will go over the top no problem.

    You can also incorporate an in line hose splicer on the drain hose to disconnect for easy pipe removal.

    whatever method it was, that is what my directions said to do that messed everything up...

    All I could find for new tubing was reinforced 3/8" fuel tubing, will this work for high pressure hose? If not, I could make another hour ride to a marina for tubing...

    Fuel line should be fine, just make sure it is clamped well. There is very little pressure involved here.

    The yellow hose shown above is from Lowes. I believe Home Depot has it too.

    Oh, and in those photos, I was just mocking up the exhaust/hoses and didnt install the black shaft cover yet.

    You will need to install that cover.

    I thought Fercho's method involved a through hull fitting? I will def. install this way! I assume this installation will work with an XLL? Where is the best place to kit the specific parts needed?

    The thru-hull fitting is only needed if you wish to retain your OE siphon tube. Most people are putting electric pumps in so it leaves the fitting in the transom plate available to use for the Jetworks inlet, plus you dont have to drill a hole in the transom.

    All of the hardware is available from a local hardware or aut parts store.

    For those doing this mod, don't forget to occasionally inspect your Jetwork valve for leaves, pebbles, and other junk. If this valve gets blocked up your waterbox will get no water to cool it off and will heat up faster than a $2 hooker. If this goes unnoticed the heat will fry ever rubber hose in the back of your ski along with everything else and cause a freaking mess.


    Maintain those valves!!
