    Default Sea strainer in a jet?? or?

    I dunno, I'm taking a little closer look last night at my disasambled motor, and all my water passages are coated with shiat, I guess you could call it sand but it's a little grittier than sand. All the steam holes in my heads were plugged up. I don't ever beach my boat. When this motor was in my tahiti I used to use the motor to push it the last couple inches on my trailer, until I read on here not to. Any thoughts? options? opinions?

    Sand and Grit can be detrimental to intercoolers and motors as you obviously know. Sea strainers won't always filter out all the sand and small items. Thats why there is the sand strainer which uses a stainless steel micron filter element to keep sand and small particles out while still allowing maximum water flow.
    Just click on the Pic for more info.

    Thanks. Pricey little devil. But then I've never priced a sea strainer.

    This is what I use for my water, fuel and oil.


    They are made out of billet and stainless steel they are available in 10 and 35 micron and they were tested to withstand over 1000 psi of pressure (dont remember exact figure right now) and they look really good.

    If most of your boating is on Utah Lake, the lake is only about 12' deep. If you watch a depth recorder you'll notice coming out of the harbors is only about
    4-5 '. If you're following any of these idiots you'll see they're kicking up a lot of bottom. I've been thinking about getting something myself.

    I use two of these...one filters my engine water, the other filters my header water.
    WARNING...high pressure can blow the clear plastic top off this filter!
    How my engine is plumbed for water, it never gets any higher than 8-11 psi water pressure.

    Thanks guys for the info. Wolfie I know I'm running in sludge. Growing up we called it poop lake(the bottom feels like baby shit) tons of silt, then somewhere along the line it got upgraded to mud lake. I was just in the garage a second ago the steam holes(at least thats what I think they are) in my heads are completley closed shut. It almost looks like calcium or I've been in the ocean. I'll put up a pic in the morning.

    sounds like your heads are expensive anodes. Do you have any anodes on your boat??

    Anodes are usually zink pices of metal that the water attacks during electrolisis. He think your aluminum heads are gettin eatin up, I think.

    I know they go on ocean boats, but never though of it on fresh water.

    When I was a kid I did a lot of diving under boats changing zincs where my dad moored his boat. That and scraping the hulls. I made more on a Saturday than my buddies did all week long working at Wendy's.
