    TDR box install question

    So after a few weeks of mike helpin me work on this boat my confidence in gettin my own hands dirty has gone way up.

    So tonight in mikes absence due to vacation i decided to knock the TDR box out on my own. All went well with the exception of how the thru-hull lined up with the box outlet. I couldnt get it to sit flush no matter what. Best i could do was a slight angle leaving a small gap in a section between the thru hull and box. I attached some pics so u can see what i mean. Is this normal for it to not match up excatly? Will this cause me any problems in the long run? Any insight is better than none.

    As always thanks you guys,
    Troy

    Can you go further to the rear with the pipe?

    Are u talking about the Riva thru hull tube? Its all the way back. I pulled it out completely and had it loose at the tip and couldnt find a good position for it. I also loosened the Box and slid it up and down, even back and forward a bit tryin to match it all up....couldnt seem to get it lol.

    Yes.
    If the riva pipe is not touching the thru hull tip you can .shorten the coupler until its touching.
    If it already is touching can you push the box further in the mid pipe.

    I slid the coupler back all the way to the secondary water injection thats just blocked off on mine so it wont go any further back. Im not sure if the pipe is touching the tip but i know the coupler is as far back on the pipe and as far forward on the tip as possible. The box is al the way forward on the mid pipe. Ill defintely check to see if i can trim the coupler down at all but im almost 100% sure that the pipe is as far back as humanly possible lol.

    You probably be fine to ride if not leaking.
    Eventually it could wear thru the couplers.
    Did u have the riva pipe with oem box? (Assuming thru hull exit is correct location)
    If so your issue is the box location. (Exit tube)

    As Steve said,thru hull pipe and thru hull waterbox have different tip locations. IMO try to get the box closest to the midpipe and you will be fine!

    Not true brother...the thru hull exit location,if done right,is the same for TDR and Riva....I have run the pipe,pre 08 style box and am now currently running the 08+ exhaust setup....I dont know why he got that box,the 08 box i have has the exit pipe already welded to it....
