Do you run any type of filters on your water lines?
In the past I ran them. Some guys in my group still run them and it seems like even though the filter catches the bulk of it, we've had situations where the filter mechanism winds up clogged, now your on the side of the creek , tide going out , friggin greenheads about to carry you away and you're tryin to pull twisted marsh grass through this mechanism (removable bowl type filter). That and the guys trying to run flow control valves. they're always clogging. My theory is if it got through the feed at the pump, keep the system at least the same diameter throughout (no neck downs like filters or valves) it should pass through. The only problem is the b pipe water jet, its got to flow or you get instant melted coupler.

Uh-oh ,What are you seeing Jordan? I admit its a bit Das Boot, but do you see a technical issue?
Technically they are fine. I just was giving you a hard time about how they are routed. Just doesn’t look clean. Maybe swap the head pissers for 90s and route the front manifold feed from the back bottom instead of the top. Just my 2cents to clean up the look.

Yeah I know what you're saying about the 90's on the head, the problem is I can't get a 90 in the front. I tried every trick I know,( street 90, cut down fittings, grinding). On the stock head that's where that little 1/8 stainless line comes through so I just always drill that out instead of capping. Both my feed lines do come from the back and are routed under(by starter), what I do is tee the front of the b-pipe mani and the line you see coming up actually goes to my external flush connection. I only ride salt so I'm diligent about flushing after every ride and that external connection just makes it convenient. And the pisser locations were already drilled so I kind of had to work with were they are, being a do no more harm to the hull type of guy.
