    Stock bilge elbow leaking??

    For some reason my stock yellow 90 degree elbows on the bilge lines spray a little out of the holes in the side of them sparaying salt water inside the engine compartment. This doesnt occur all the time but does happen on occasion. Why would they do that?

    I think it's because they have a pin hole in the to bleed suction. That's why they must be kept elevated in the hull.

    They are called anti syphon devices and need to be up above the water line. If water is still coming out the holes then the tubes in the nozzle or the orings in the nozzle are missing. They are part of the Bailers and should only be flowing out not in and only when the engine is running

    Hmmmm..... Mine are up as high as they can be and o rings are in the pump but mine still sprays water out of the pinhole in the 90* fitting occasionally, spraying my engine, intercooler, and exhaust with salt water.

    I know. Thats why I just ripped the bailer lines out and had my friend order me the bilge pump/switch. I hated those lines in there.
