Rear Exhaust - a few ?'s
Im installing the riva rear exhaust and have a few ?'s
How the hell do you get the riva pipe connected to the rubber connector at the rear of the hull, there is no room to fit a hand back there with the waterbox there, I can do it without the waterbox but then the dam thing wont fit back in the hull.
Also can that foam in the back be removed, that would give a few inches I think??
And lastly, how tight do you make the clamp that joins the manifold to the pipe going to the waterbox??

if you removed your OPAS you can stick a 1/4 inch drive socket up through the hole and turn both clamps. I tightened the sh!t out of mine considering It will be full of water when the engines not running so it has to be water tight. And yes the foam can come out, I think it has to, to be able to get the pipe on.

Hehehe! Aren't you glad you're not attempting this on an RXT hull? The RXP is a piece of cake compared to the couches.

It can be done it just take time. Yes you have to remove the foam to get everything to seat right.

Foam is coming out on that side today!!! I hope that helps.
How tight do you make that T clamp on the manifold?
Also does the plastic air breather tube that is connected to the rear grab handle area have to be removed, bc The plastic cowling wont go back on cuz this air tube is hitting the Riva pipe!!

dont they check while at work LOL ......Im guessing it comes out, I dont see how it wouldnt, everything is in its correct spot but that tube hits the pipe even if its moveda few inches.
It looks like if I had a greenhulk waterbox and pipe it would not get in the way, Hope someone can chime in!!!!

Just takes alot of patients and someone to calm you down while doing it..Been there
Try doing rear exhuast with the riva box, not a fun gig..worth the time and effort though
Beside the point take all the foam out and put the oulet pipe in the rear coupler first. It'll take a little working to get it in there since its at an angle, by the way dont forget to have the hose clamp hanging on the pipe. I forgot that step and had to do it all over...Just take your time and breathe...
You using the stock waterbox???

Ya i got that far, now im just needing to know if that air vent tube comes off. I cant get the top cowling on with it on there and Riva's site only shows to remove it for the RXT. So im stuck for now till someone answers that one. I started it up though, it sounds sweet.
