i will try to explain as best i can, so you can understand your cooling system, and hoses.
your exhaust pipe, consists of an exh manifold, head pipe, and pipe body. the manifold is the piece that mounts directly to your engine cylinder. the head pipe, is the U shaped pipe, that goes from the manifold, up to the pipe body. the pipe body, is the rectangular bread box shaped piece that has an exit out the bottom that goes to your water box.
the water, coming from your jet pump, comes in the lower LH side of the engine compartment ( LH if you are in the tray, facing forward).
you need a hose running from the tube in the lh lower engine compartment, to your exh manifold. your exhaust manifold should have a straight 3/8 brass nipple close to the motor.
the water then goes into your exhaust manifold, into your cyl, and up through your head. it then will exit out your head, and needs to go back to your pipe. you should have a 3/8 brass fitting on your head, and one on the lower part of the U on your head pipe. you need to have a hose running from your head, to the lower part of the U on the head pipe. water then fills the pipe here, from the bottom - up to bleed out any air in the system.
on the back side of the U head pipe, you will have a smaller, 1/8 straight nipple. you need to take a hose from this, and run it out the side of the ski. this is a water "tell tale" so you know you are getting water, when your machine is running.
hope this helps.
