    XLT Bilge Pump Installation (Pics included)

    Alright guys, u know the usual, I shoot pics of every job I do on my ski. Below u will find some pics of the newly installed bilge pump. As some of u may know, I installed Abbott's 5 deg. nozzle with the syphon tube removed so now I didn't have the OEM bilge system & installed the Jetworks Kit so I wanted to make sure that I have a good pump incase fails.
    I have yet to fasten the pump. It's super snug where I placed it though. I also had a hard time figuring out where to place the bilge exit nozzle & after thinking alot about it, I placed it on the right hand side about 10 inches above the waterline. I know the bilge instructions say 12 inches but I think it should be fine there. I installed the switch right by the choke. On the button I installed the waterproof boot. That should keep it dry huh? Anyway, I will ride tomorrow & hopefully I won't need it.

    Nice Job. I moved this over to the How-To section. This will come in handy for XLT owners
    You can Epoxy the pickup screen to the hull if it is snug there.

    good job !

    Another mounting option.... I mounted mine to the backside of the battery box, I can pull the whole thing in and out.... and no gluing!

    I know this post is OLD, but do you remember where you got that bracket from?
