MT Waterbox ideas
I for one am trying to find an easy solution for emptying the WB.
My reasons for this, is because I store her in my garage, one foot off the Gyprok wall. So starting it every day or so is a pain.
I have to get the boss to start it while I hold a buck over the exhaust.
Corey and Waz are right in saying , you will empty it over a couple of days.
Some of us may have nieghbours or live in a situation where you cant make that much noise after hours.
Corey mentioned putting a drain at the back of the BW and hooking it upto the drain plug.
Im looking for a faster method.
After a ride it takes me 1.5 hours to clean the beast.
I then drive 2 km's too get all the water out of the trailer area's.
Then she sits high on the driveway for around 7 hours. I start it 2 times extra during the 7 hours.
Then I would like that to be the end of it. Outside of spraying the internals.
Any idea's please post away no matter how silly the idea may be

dont think you will find a faster method than the one i mentioned, how slow are you at turning a drain cock, or undoing a bung?

I think he means easier ie less work. I just think its funny this is still a topic of conversation. Wot you really want to empty the wb quick just delete it and buy a pair of ear plugs

I will say I had success using Nicjak's method of blowing out the Waterbox with the Bow elevated today. This does seem to blow out some extra water that has accumulated towards the back of the waterbox. . . . great idea Nic!
I went "toe to toe" today on my 260 vs a "speed bypass" modded 300 Ultra today . . . I am still licking my wounds. I am not too surprised by the outcome, but how about a little respect???

gee your a tough guy and not asking for much lmao
steve getting a bung welded would actually be the easiest part and fabbing the rear of the hull wouldnt take all that much either, good luck with nutting it out guys..
vman yes when the box is in your hand with water in it the water does move rather fast
