    Is there a secret to the bailer lines???

    Ok. Started installing the IC/bracket and plumbing.... And im just about tired of messing around with these freaking bailer lines. No matter what I do they are in the dam way! Answer me this.......... Do those lines have to be that length or can they be shortened some?

    I had to tape my off to the side, when I was doing fabrication of my bracket. The issue I had was the coolant line.

    The coolent resivor is always in the way. I have found a lot of nice places it can be shoved. It has almost been riped out of my ski several times.

    As far as the bailer lines i have no idea, but have been told to replace the plastic ties with good clamps, and keep the lines and bailers up high. I also have nice places for them to be hidden when working on the ski.

    I replace the zipties w/ clamps..

    I TOTALLY agree with the coolant tank comment. I have about thrown that thing across the garage several times

    the bailer lines could be a little shorter but you must have the upwards loop way above the waterline otherwise the ski will fill with water whenever sitting still

    If you put a bilge pump in like a Rule, I think you can just take them out.

    Thanks for the replies. Im just getting plain tired of looking at those lines and trying to situate them.

    PS: That coolant tank never sits where you want it to. It always falls!

    Muddy, he is talking about when you working on the ski and it being in the way. I had to think about that one for a minute.

    Take a small Bungi cord and hook it to the front of the engine!
