Thread: Cooling issue
03-23-2009, 07:35 PM #1
So we went out this weekend and had great conditions, 65* and 51* water.
I redid my cooling lines so that they come out just in front of the right footwell.
Last fall the Mag Cylinder stream was really strong (6' Arc)and the center was ok, (2 ft Arc) PTO was just dribbling out and overheating.
I added 2 valves to restrict flow on the Mag and CTR. and now have it fairly balanced. But man the water coming out is really hot. 50* in and to hot to touch coming out. After 10 min of riding, all cylinders are too hot to touch without burning my fingers. even in 50* water (no thermostat)
What did I do wrong?

Are you sure that all the gasket passages are free and clear and the head gaskets are installed correctly? Water pick-up strainer clear?

Water pick up strainer???
Where might that little wonder be?
head gaskets are correct
paper gaskets for the new outlets are fiber with grease no putty or caulk

Item #12 it is located inside the pump nozzle behind item #11

That would be here in the pump nozzle.... and it's kinda clogged too.

just went and looked. the filter is not clogged, because it is not there. maybe I got something up inside. but I still have flow
I will pull the pump tomorrow
funny, that pick up is way outside the high pressure area of the pump. figured it would be closer to the stator
also notice two chunks out of the stator.
will take pics tomorrow

is the grate angled? does it act like a grate/scoop

It's close to the trailing edge of the stator at the reduction nozzle. As the outlet is reduced, the pressure is greater. Its a good location for it.
edit: I shouldn't have slowed down my internet to save $.
