Hey Wild Turkey, Could you please tell us about the way you ran your bilge pump exit line. I saw in your pricture (linked below) it looks like you ran through the dam into the splashwell. How did you do that, how did that work? Anyone else have a good way to route the exit pipe.

Here's Wild Turkey's setup -

I just took a picture of the factory installation on my Montauk. Works great.

It will be in your e-mail shortly.

Taylor... That was the setup when I bought the boat in 1992 (boat is a 1989). I don't think it is a factory setup though.

Exit line is attached to the bilge pump in the sump. Exit line is then routed up and connected to a 90 degree elbow into the splash well. On other side of splash well is a clam shell with directs the flow downward into the well.

Great setup... no problems here. It would be interesting to see the current factory setup for the Montauk now.

Wild Turkey & Taylor

That is the same set up I have on my 99 Montauk and mine is factory.

I do like the looks of that. It beats the heck out of the loose hose I have hanging over the transom.

Wild Turkey, I couldn't help but notice two other things. First, the fuel water separator in the splash well? Does that work pretty well? I thought those things were supposed to be vertical. Second, the primer bulb is on the input side of the filter. Does it matter where it is in the fule line? I'm just asking because I am about to relocate my fuel water separator.

An alternative I use is: PVC with a 90 at the top of the splash well, and a 45 off the piece that goes over the splash well. No drilling required, no epoxy to seal any holes, no chance of water leaks, and similar looking to the link. Mine looks like an inverted snorkel.

Thanks for the picture Dick, I like the way you showed both the clamshell and the elbow in the same shot. It certainly does beat the line that flops around on my boat. And Wild T... nice V4, much more compact package than my straight 4 Merc.

Hey where2. Could you post or e-mail me a little more detail on your PVC combo installation, e.g. is it attached in any way? Thx.

Great points about the water separator. I bought the boat in 92 rigged like it is shown. It seems to work just fine. It takes forever to prime the motor after changing the filter. For that reason I just leave the fuel system primed.
I have often thought about removing the separator...(keep it simple, stupid). What do you think?

BTW... tried out the new jackplate setup this afternoon... 43.8 mph (by GPS) WOT @ 5600 rpm. A little chine walk and HOLD ON!!
Ended up with cavitation plate about 2-1/2" above bottom of transom.
