    water routing

    after putting a 6 degree wedge on my virage , i thought why not combine by two 3 degree wedges and make a 6 on install on my sltx ( one from the virage , and the one already on sltx ) . i ran into a issue with the water inlet rod being to short . after asking around on here someone told me that i could pull the rod out more and still have enough to use inside the hull .
    sounds simple .

    so i have it all done , and couldn't quite get the rod to go all the way in to the housing . kind of sits on a angle .
    just wondering if it looks ok to some more experienced members on here , or if they may think it will cause an over heat issue . had a heck of a time installing the pump assembly back and trying to keep that rod from sliding back into the hull. nothing to block it against , and working alone !
    pics attached .

    has anyone else ever done this ??? are the combined 2 peices thicker than just one solid one ??

    well that would have been slick .......................35 min ago . LOL
    do you think i will have a issue with the water not going full force to the engine ?? maybe leaking out where they mate up because of them not being fully seated ??? causing over heat issues ??
