    Running engine on the hose????

    Is there any way to run this 4tec engines on the hose for a long period of time with out damaging the carbon seal? How about removing the cclip that holds the hat?

    yes, that would work, if u took tension off the boot, and carbon seal.
    No friction, no heat, or wear

    How about the ride plate not being in the water to cool the engine. By running it on the hose you are cooling only the exhaust.

    Good point. But the water coming out of the exhaust outlet should keep the plate cool....but it should be monitored.

    He has open loop cooling.... as long as you pull the C-clip and move the hat off the carbon seal, you can run it as long as you want on the hose. Same applies if your running a heat exchanger.

    OR u have a Y u make that connects to the end of your garden hose and one part of Y feeds the motor while the other can be placed STRATEGICALLY under the boat to feed the boot seal with sprayed water and works just fine without undoing anything or heating anything up................BET!!!!!!!!!!!
