    Hot Seat Pipe help

    Okay I'm trying to get this dammed boat running. The stupid PTO pipe is loose at the manifold. I can literally wiggle it around. How is this thing supposed to be anchored down?? I can't see how just those springs keep it place by themselves??

    Do you have the tabs that hold the springs on the upper two manifold bolts, because 2 go to the top and 2 go to the bottom.

    springs...

    Look at this pic, that's how they should be.

    Thanks for your guys help...I wasn't able to ride my '97 at all this weekend but at least now I know what needs to be done. I emailed Hot Seat to see if they have the springs and brackets. If they don't, then I will go to the site you gave me Crazy and get the springs and I guess just make some brackets.

    I think this thing is going to fight me to the end. The collar for the through hull fitting has come separated again. I tried to epoxy the hell out of it but the vibration still broke it loose. I am going to have to get some fiberglass matte and fiberglass the dammed thing in.

    On another note, my '98 was running like a mofo. I got 64.1 MPH on the GPS at 7930-7960 RPM!! And it did it several times to be sure it wasn't a fluke in the gauge or GPS. I have some pictures of it...I couldn't believe it was running so well for what little mods I have on it. It was almost in the same RPM range as the '97 with the pipes on it (when it ran...dammit).
