  1. Yes the original pump was discontinued and they sell a conversion. The conversion was still being manufactured when I replaced mine. I would have been down last summer for 3+weeks so I researched the pumps specifics. The p5000 was same psi and flow, from information I could find, and I figured as long as the pressure regulator could dump back to tank I'd be ok.
  2. So if you are cheap like me, u can do the 500$ conversion for 100$. All I did was order the carter p5000 from summit racing. https://m.summitracing.com/parts/crt-p5000 Then I removed return to pump line from the bracket and plugged it with 7/16 x24 fitting plug. I spliced a new connection and put it back together and it's been good.
  3. @Hyperryd you must have endless energy! Another great write up!
  4. My nephew is figuring it out! Here's some video so the pics don't cheat anything. IMG_3123.MOV
  5. I used rigid insulation from Lowes, fiberglass(bondo brand), two part epoxy, bondo filler, bondo fiberglass resin, 2" Velcro, and I painted with flex seal. I started with making a template. I followed 30 degree angle with a triangle with 20x15x10 inch sides. I cut four triangular pieces of two inch foam and laminated them together. I sanded all sides really well, then cut fiberglass and epoxied first layer. The eps foam will melt if you use resin. But after the epoxy layer I used a more inexpensive resin for a couple more layers. Then used bondo filler to smooth and fill some uneven spots. Lots of sanding involved before painting and spraying with flex seal( I wouldn't use flex seal again it marks boat and has got sticky/messy). Finally, I put Velcro on its side and both sides of my hull. It works really well! I'll take more pics if anyone's interested. I'd incorporate a cut in handle and a breather valve but it's worked for a couple seasons now. I don't use spacer in pic, I just let the shaper hanger down over the step in my hull. I fill my rear and ski lockers and cheat some lead to surf side.
  6. I made a triangle and you engineered a masterpiece! Great work! I admire your skills!
  7. I added fae and decided while I had the thru hull exhaust off it would be a good time to delete the 21 year old muffler that was bound to fail at some point. There isn't a ton of room so with the tips off its way easier to get hoses on and off. I went with a one piece thru hull fae, so once it was screwed into transom, I wouldn't have to forget to tighten clamps. I found muffler shop that would fabricate a stainless straight pipe for 700$. I wanted to spend less so I found 4x 3.5" rubber elbows and 2x 9" pieces of stainless steal 3.5". It was an easy fix and fit great. I have been out once to test it and there is pretty good spray between transom and swimstep but I'll work on that. Pics are just from fitting I added clamps lol
  8. I am impressed this is a very nice custom exhaust with extra function. Genius!
