Outback V Tsunami upgrade
Just thought id post this up since there was some question as to weather these pumps would fit in a smaller space. I put a couple differant manifolds togeather just to see how they would work.
Heres the first one

Tight fit!!! Not easy to work in such a small area. Excellent job!
Did your boat come stock with GIII? If not, what are you using for drain pumps? Post more pics once you're done

Thanks for the pics, just so you (and anyone else that's interested) know, Tsunami pumps with the long inlet use straight thread, so you can cut that down with a hack saw to 3/4" of an inch and it will still thread into your fittngs fine. That makes it a little easier to fit everything into cramped bilge compartments.
Also, ideally you should use bronze fittings for this application and not brass. Brass will undergo galvanic corrosion at a much faster rate, in fact we've seen brass ball valves fail in less than a year. If it's past the ball valve you can switch to plastic, which will save you quite a bit of weight and money.
Nice install though, can't wait to see the finished product!WakeMAKERS | WakePROPS | WakeSOUNDS | EasyBoatCare
