    Doc so in a bit shell it is a smart idea not to put the strainer before engine or on the engine line is that what I get from your reply?

    That my thinking is correct that the orfice is on me engine are big enough to let debris flow through unlike an intercooler where the water is traveling through fins

    Yah I would be more worried about starving out the water to your engine. I've had my strainer completely fill with sand and get clogged...luckily I got thrown from the ski when I hit the sandbar so the ski shut off immediately.

    See, that is your problem. You need to learn how to properly dismount as its less painful. The hard part about that is the practice required before you nail it. Wait a sec, I think you are on your way...

    Hahaha.. thats funny Sanifish. And yes Meinstein I think general agreement is the filter can cause more harm than good. After 25 hours mine was still clean and we noticed it was cracked and leaking. Removed it.

    How can i tell when the thermo opens? i was on hose for maybe 3 or 4 minutes water coming out of engine exit was hot as fuck but i never saw flow increase as you would suspect if it had opened

    tomorrow im going to use a temp gauge on water coming out but what should i expect temp increase from oil cooler to raise from thermo
