    Bilge pumps on conversions

    If you cut out your midwall, where you guys installing your bilge pump? I have part of my midwall still there, just the squared out area where the intermediate shaft sits on. But wondering where you guys were installing your bilge pumps? Pics would be nice,
    Thanks

    Attached mine directly under the driveshaft right behind the motor. This is the lowest spot and fits perfect.

    Thanks Duke, I'll go take a look now and see if I can make it work. I have an aftermarket bilge pump, not sure if it will fit, but I'll post back up once I go out there.
    Sweet, it fits under there perfect. How did you attach it to the hull or did you attach it to the motor with a bracket of some sorts?

    Bilge pumps are very important. Versa plugs duck bills and stock siphon only work if the craft is running. Bilge pump is the only thing that will save you if you are not running.

    bilge pumps are very important IF you leave your boat in the water. If my ski isnt moving across the water it is on my trailer or on the lift, therefor I dont waste the space of having a bilge pump in there, I run dual duck bills. All depends what the life of your boat is.

    After some of the drama I have had over the years I almost lost my 1500cc 2 stroke GPr due to not running a bilge pump. So to me it is very important. I also run duck bills so i dont trust those either.

    Shotter i used a template that Billy gave for mounting it right in front of the center support bearing.

    ALWAYS RUN A BILGE PUMP.

    at mb this past year the hose that seals the driveshaft split on my ski. the volume of water was too much for the versiplugs. the 1 500gpm pump was what saved me, and barely. glue the strainer down to the hull with silicone or 5200.


    also, buy rule pumps and only rule. not the cheap walmart shit. theres a reason that oem's use rule pumps, and one of them is the fact that they are rated for continuous duty, dry. they won't catch on fire if you leave them running like the cheap ones.

    Did the rxts come with a rules? I may have a spare one laying around, I guess i'll have to go through the parts bucket, hahaha.
    If your ski happens to crack the pump tunnel like mine did, you will be grateful for the bilge pump. Between that and the duckbills, saved my ski from sinking. To each his own though.
    I guess I'll silicone it down to the bottom of the hull where Duke said.
    Addicted, mine is not an automatic one, its manual. I used it in a few of my seadoos with no problems.
