O.P.A.S. Block offs..?
Thinking about removing opas...Are there any preferences out there
regarding Riva pro's vrs. RE's..?..or does it matter
also...will i need the VTS nut tool to remove VTS..?...or can i get away without it?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions

some prefer the rivas which is what i have and they work great. if you ask me the RE ones look identical. price is same so whatever. i removed the vts nut painstakingly but it was possible without the tool

Thanks for your reply...looking at both installation instructions ...they do look pretty much the same....as far as that VTS nut...hhhmmm...not sure how you did that...but i'll take a closer look...I would asume that the pump would have to come off to even get near it...

RE's are better as they extend all the way to the back of the Hull, the Rivas dont.
heres a pic of my RE blockoff's... Oh and to get the VTS Nut got to home depot or rona and get Black PVC pipe heat the end up and slid it over the vts nut, let it kool and BAM you have a VTS nut removal tool

Opas removal and block offs
You do not have to remove the vts nut to do this.this is a very simple removal and super easy install, you wont have any problems. Just take your time...re block-offs for me too.

Whatever you do, don't get the cheap Riva $100 ones like me.
Looking back, I am not quite sure why they tell you to remove the VTS nut? I didn't have to on mine.

It can be done without removing the VTS box. I believe the instructions were made for both the TX and PX where you would need to remove the VTS Box to get the extra hoses off the RXT OPAS.
As far as block off I got the RE ... look SICK once installed and perform like a dream ... you will never question this purchase!
I noticed that the installation on the RE for the left side was a little off compared to the right. A few other members complained about the same problem. Although just start all 4 bolts BEFORE tightening any of them down!!! Then slowly tighten all four little by little until they are nice and tight!
@ OCMAN - You have a relocation kit???? You had to remove the VTS to get the old IC Bracket out .... It's the BIG BLACK PLASTIC NUT that holds the complete VTS in place. You also did the bucket mod ... Did you had to take off the VTS arm in order to remove and cut the bucket unless you just left it on?? :P I went to Home Dept and bought some plumbing sockets for $15 and it came right off!

Hey guys, does anyone know where to get the block offs that go all the way to the end of the hull? I remember seeing something like it a while ago. Was it Jerry maybe?
