    Pro785 Exhaust Hoses

    What is the prefered choice for the exhaust hose part number 8450081-31
    that goes to the exhaust collector?

    I had some Gates Green Stripe Radiator hose in mine, untill I cooked it from the inside this weekend, after putting in my JetWorks valve and the water flow coming from the heads was not near enough to keep the flow going,
    Should I go back in with some radiator hose, or with something with a little more temperature?

    Did your jet Works valve get clogged and not enought water flow was able to get to your exhaust to keep it cooled down. I dont really understand, because I havent put mine in yet and was wondering if you had a problem.

    You need a good quality silicone high temp hose for the stinger connections. McMaster has it search for silicone coolant hose.

    I had saw a drawing that instead of moving the water to the inlet side from the pump, it left it to the water outlet side that came from the head,

    I put the valve with the arrow pointing towards the 3 way but I guess there wasent enough water pressure to keep water flowing thru the exhaust, so the hoses got hot and burned up,
    I had just rode for a couple of minutes,
    I am either taking the jetworks valve out, or moving that hose to the pump inlet side.

    I have found the same gates hose at Orielly for $12.00 per foot, it only takes about 2 feet,

    this is the drawing I used,

    I just put one jetworks valve on hose # 19 before the splitter like it was suggested,
    I now suggest to put the red line over to the pump inlet side hose # 22, or tap off of the water manifold # 20 this way doesent work,

    The other funny thing is that I had water coming out the pissers and a good stream of water coming out the back from the head? but I didn't think about looking for the water coming out the exhaust pipe in back,

    Ya I think that was the best way was to put the 19T red line over to the pump inlet side hose # 22. And to point the arrow to the front of the nose of the ski. Got the valve in the mail but havent put it in yet. No time to get the ski to the water yet. Let me know how this configuration works out. But Randy from what I have read on the forums suggests T it in the inlet on linne 22, or Tap into the water intake six collector. Good luck!

    This is the way to go...forget about putting a "T" in any line. The water manifold is aluminum, easy to drill and tap. You need a NPT tap and brass fitting available at any hardware or home improvement store.
