    Ocean Pro head with pissers?

    Has anyone ever drilled holes in their Ocean Pro head in order to add pissers? I was looking over my head and it appears that there is a spot where you could drill and tap another water line, but what about adding one for each cylinder?

    You could, but you already have a 3/4" outlet to begin with.

    Yeah...now that I look at it closer, the only spot to drill would result in TWO exits, not three. They are between the cylinders. I will probably just split the single outlet into three pissers to keep the 'triple' look. More aesthetics than function. Do I need to worry that three pissers will flow enough? Three 1/4" lines don't exactly equal a 3/4" line.

    .25 inch plus .25inch plus .25inch = .75 inch which is 3/4". 3 times .25 = .75 Or am I missing something here?

    oh yeah, Canuckian,,metrics!

    Yes, you are forgetting the fact that the area of a cross section of a hose is dependant on the circumference of the hose using the formula pi*r^2 and some other calculations. (I am not an engineer and I am not up on my physics) The 3/4" diameter hose has quite a bit more cross sectional area than three 1/4" hoses.

    But it doesn't matter, I realize tapping for extra water outlets is kinda useless on this style head.

    That is not how the math works

    Perfect visual representation! It would take a lot of 1/4" hoses to flow the same as a 3/4" hose.

    Ok. So the verdict on outlet hoses is? Just wondering as I have the same head and am going to be doing up Polaris Hilton project this winter.

    Not sure what the verdict is regarding pissers. My original question was more in regards to having a tap at each cylinder so that I could have one pisser for each cylinder in order to check for proper temp and flow for each. With a closer look I realize i won't work that way anyways because of the design of the head, the water outlet is between two cylinders to begin with. The water outlet will probably be run to a water manifold that splits into three outlets that will run to three pissers, mostly just to keep the triple look. Otherwise it will just be run to the stock water exit at the rear of the ski. Three 1/4" pisser hoses is likely sufficient since that is all that is usually run with other head configurations, although I believe 3/8" pissers are available. Don't want to overcool either though.
