    How To: Rectifier Mount

    I finished installing my Kanaflex 4" intake and found a easy, inexpensive way to mount the rectifier after removing the front section of the stock intake.
    I was trying to put this in the How To Section but I dont have permission.

    Hopefully this will help some of you.

    You will need:

    - 4" PVC Coupler
    - 2 Zip ties
    - Drill & bit larger then width of zip ties.

    1) Get yourself a 4" coupler from Home Depot or similar.



    2) The coupler has a ridge in the middle, you will need to cut notches so the rectifier will lay flat and not rock back and forth. I suggest a 1" notch on both sides. You can do this using a large drill bit on its side.



    3) Once you have both notches cut, then you can test fit your rectifier.



    4) Now, I eyeballed where I wanted to drill (on ether side of the edge of the rectifier) to put the zip ties through. The holes will need to be big enough for the ties.





    5) Now take the zip ties and start feeding through the rectifier towards the outside. Then back inside and lock the ties.This way the locking part will be inside rather then "sticking out" on the outside. This is IMPORTANT because you will be putting this ontop of your gas tank and dont need to poke holes

    (Please note: this photo shows the locks on the outside... i changed it)



    6) Now place back in the hull, ontop of the tank and reconnect the rubber straps. Reconnect the rectifier plugs and pat yourself on the back.

    No problems with overheating, you still have air flowing through the hull and pvc pipe.

    The kit come with a bracket to mount it on the side of the boat, you drill a hole through the fiberglass. I did mine by drilling two holes in the black intake tube which comes from the front of the seat. Than put two bolts in and tightened the rectifier right to that! Seems to be sturdy so far!
