    those running riva intakes

    I have been running my riva intake since last year. When I was swapping my ceramic washers out for metals today, I noticed that it sits on the rubber cover over the carbon seal.. It puts a little bit of pressure on it, no matter how I tighten it down it wont stop from hitting it.... Anyone else have this issue?? I"m wondering if it will cause damage??

    yes, I always thought it was to close. Switching to the Riva rear intake will solve that problem! Won't do any damage though!!

    Mine slightly sat on the cover as well. Never had an issue. If you wanted to you could heat it up and slightly bend it or even sit it in direct sunlight for a few hours and weight/band it to form. Once it does cool it quickly.

    I wont worry about it if its not gonna cause an issue, but it sits on there for sure. Applies a bit of pressure to it.

    A bit is ok. I had mine way off when I first installed it, and it was making the carbon ring drip water in the hull. I could not get it completely off the boot either, but I got it to stop leaking...

    Is there any reported cases on water ingestion and the rear intake causing major damage? I read this all the time about the rear intake, I have the rear intake and have never had a problem with it. I am not in the ocean and can understand the problems there with the waves but riding on a river or a lake I don't see why some people are so afraid of this unless there are some documented cases were the rear intake caused major damage to a 4tec enginge.
