Holeshot/Jetworks MOD Question
I started installing the jetworks mod on my gpr, things were going good till a fitting broke. While looking at the way the water comes in to the hull to cool the motor why can't we just put in a T on that line that feeds the water log? Run that line to the flow control valve instead of having to put a cover on the outside of the pump with a fitting in it, a through hull fitting (or however u want to get water inside) to the flow control valve. It seems like it would be alot easier that way and a lot less everything to deal with.

You want a line from the pump to the Jetworks so the JW valve will open up at a certain RPM. Water flows to the path of least resistance; if you T something off of it, you will lose your pressure to make the valve open. Very bad things will happen then.

thanks.............i was just wondering, a friend of mine and I were putting the kit on (hooking it up like you are supposed to) and was just discussing different ways it might be able to be done. I see your point.

I'll add to what Smitty said, there's a huge vaccum of pressure at the pump caused by the prop, so you get a strong water pressure to the jetworks valve.
