Riva Opel Loop "water outlet fitting"
In the riva open loop kit with the thermo.. i was thinking to place the water outlet on a another position. Because there is not so much space on the side off the thru hull exhaust outlet.
Have you guys some ideas were i should have it?.. is there any problems if the outlet is higher up than the thermo unit??
Im sorry for my bad English
If you read the Thread subject i know.. i mean Open.. not Opel

I put my water outlet off the RIVA thermostat thru the OPAS inside block-off on the right rear. You have to remember 160*+ water is shooting out of there, so think about where its going to be coming out.

I drilled a stock plastic exhaust blockoff plug and placed it in the center.

isnt that little stupid.. because the water hose connection is near this.. and you must connect the hose when the engine is running.. (thinking on the hot water from the outlet)
I dont really know if you can use that flush connection on the pump shoe after you have replace all parts to open loop. Or is the flush hose in the engine room just "flush option nr.2??"

I did not install the flush line but everything else is per instructions but I did shorten a hose here or there. I have also heard the washer supplied may have to be enlarged a tad bit if long wot temps hit 215 or so. I'm still monitoring. I will get you pictures later when I'm home.

you mean the washer with the yellowrubber gasket round it.. you put between pump and pumpshoe?. I have already put in that
I was thinking to make the diagram little bit different. Make a T coupler before Intercooler.. so the intercooler get a seperate line.. "after intercooler just thru hull fitting and out"
But can you still flush it good.. when the flush hose in the engine room is gone.
