    Indentify this hose/line? (pic inside)

    I just purchased this 1997 SL1050 and upon inspecting the engine bay I noticed this clear hose that isnt hooked up to anything. The end appears to be flared as if it were hooked up to something.

    Upon further inspection (read: yanking on the hose), It seems I pulled its other end off of whatever it may have been hooked up to. This end appeared to be clogged with a white/tan granular substance (possibly built up salt?)

    Any ideas? The line was routed under the engine.

    Its most likely your speedometer hose. Get a mirror and look under the bearing carrier for driveshaft, there should be a nipple thing that it needs to be hooked onto. If its not hooked up you have a small hole in the bottom of your boat and will take on water.

    It could also be the battery vent hose.

    correction, I didn't see the red arrows, I'm not sure what that one is, the other one in the pic under the bearing carrier is your speedometer air hose. Jumping to conclusions..oops

    Lots of skis that have the newer AGM batteries, also have a clear, unused, hose lying nearby!

    Like mentioned above...check your battery for a missing vent hose, and if you have a AGM battery, see if this hose could be part of the older battery setup.

    it's a pretty length hose, I'd say roughly 3 feet and was routed towards the front of the craft from the picture..that's a pretty long vent hose, no?

    yup, the hose has to reach all the way up front to the vent connector up near the steering console, opposite to the gas vent (on the SL900)..., stumped me for a while also.
