    JS 440

    Does anyone have any pictures of the motor area of their 440/550? I really need to get an idea of where all the water lines need to run, as well as the fuel lines.

    Here is what I have:

    1988 550 Hull
    1977 440 Motor
    Westcoast Exhaust
    Westcoast Exhaust Manifold
    2 Pissers on left side of hull
    Hot seat Water box
    Below the waterline Exhaust port on Right side

    If someone can give me a hand with some pictures, I would greatly appreciate it! I am hoping to get this ski put together in the next 3 weeks (just in time for the warm weather!)

    Thanks guys!

    Oh yeah! I have finally gotten the motor pretty well put back together. The only problem now is the plumbing! As soon as I can get all that worked out, I will be on the water in a heart beat

    Thanks again for that hull. How you been by the way?

    I have pics but you can't really see anything. The water inlet is on the left side of the ski and it goes to the exhaust manifold (about a 6-7 inch hose). If you have two pissers then that about covers it doesn't it?

    If I remember correctly, the water needs to go into the case, up through the heads and into the water jacket which then leads out of the exhaust

    I will take pics of mine, but every exhaust is different, once you add a cooling port or non stock pipe
