thanks bruinsrme, thats exactly what i needed. Just completed the order. You would not happen to know what size washer i would need for a temporary fix would you?

I have one in my hand but I cant find my tape measure.
I would say about 30 mm with a 10mm hole

Damn Steve. I wish I had caught this sooner. GPRXP Steve had sent me one and just today I found my missing one on the floor in my basement. I don't suggest you do a temporary fix. But if you must, make damn sure that it's the right size. I had too much pressure and the hose blew, almost sinking my ski (remember my thread?) Yeah.

James, that is what i cant believe. I remember your thread and many others posting of size being a precise issue on ic. I rode my ski last weekend for 2 hours without a restrictor, not on purpose.
I just find the mistake tonight when changing props.
I removed my cowling and no leakes or blown hoese from ic or even graco. Looks like these XS intercoolers can take some pressure.
PLus my ski never missed a skip, in fact was under proped and all over the limiter.
Wonder why it did not cause any issues? I figured if can run without restrictor then surely will run with washer close in size. I just ordered bunch of oem parts (restrictor, and colection of different bolts needed for spares) and probably want see that package until late next week. Surely a washer is not going to keep me from riding this weekend if I get the chance.

I noticed mine was missing and used a substitute washer. That was my problem.

James I think your near drowning was several issues combined. Running without the washer could lead to way to much pressure and excess water in the ski's components but a substitute washer with the incorrect hole size should not be that big of an issue as long as the hole is give or take 2mm within specs. You need some restriction to reduce the pressure and regulate the amount of water being introduced to the ski's cooling system and you definitely don't want the hole to small.

There were no other issues. The hose was blown apart and forcing water into the hull faster and faster according to how much I hit the throttle to get to shore.

James, similar thing happened to me. The hose came loose on the bottom of J pipe, impossible to find at first. The faster i tried to go to dock the faster the water entered hull.
