Anyone have a pic of the "Y" install on a moomba v drive. I just want to verify where the raw water intake is when i cut that hose and install the "y" fitting.


I assume on the v drive its at the stern of the boat. please correct me if i am wrong. i dont want to make a mistake.


pics would be helpful. the detailed impellar change thread vanished i think

Joe, I haven't installed mine yet but cut it into the intake hose between the vdrive and the raw water pump (where the impeller lives).

Not sure if this helps you.. it is a bitch to install. I marked where i wanted it then pulled the hose out and installed....

Just trying to verify where the impeller is, front by the drive or at the very rear of the motor. I was trying to locate it with flash light at 10 pm.

Lsvboombox, thanks. I see that but I want to make sure its the correct one so I can trace it to the impeelar housing.

If looking at my pic the vdrive is on the right and impellar on left. Its the bottom hose going in the impeller

Got it. I was afraid I would have to cut it back by the drain plug.darn obv is really tight. Was able to get dual fill pumps and 5 port manifold mounted Friday night with a flash light. Ugh. Need to plumb and wire.

Yes, the black hose with the green stripe. That should go from the v-drive to the raw water pump which houses the impeller.

thanks al,

that darn impeller is in the toughest spot on the boat, at least on the smaller boat hulls. I can barely get my arm back there....:mad:

Is the purpose of the wye fitting to recirculate the already-warm water back through the engine? What is the alternative to using the wye fitting? Where would that hose get connected?

purpose of the wye fitting is to circulate warm water at idle. if not there are pics in my install and als in stall on top of the engine as well as at the stern of the engine.
