    Default Blower motors have you checked your intercoolers.

    Changing the cam in my boat a lifter was going out just caught it before it went all the way out. so I was checking some things. Had my blower restriped. And I checked out my My intercooler it was Half way clogged with small pieces of wood, sand etc. Has anybody had this problem, Has anybody checked. I don't want to put a sea strainer on a jet that that wood be funny.

    yep, pretty common in sandy areas.
    A lot of the offshore stuff runs a small strainer just for the intercooler

    I've got a buddy with a intercooled jet boat. He runs a sea strainer so you wouldn't be the only one doing it.

    Default sea strainer

    Default Question

    Im running my chiller off the bypass so it gets water only under throttle.

    Im looking at running the Hardin Marine Intercooler Fine Mesh Sand & Sea Strainer ( P/N 625-4620 )

    Should I plumb it after the bypass so it strains the superchiller water only? Or plumb it so the unit strains all water (engine & intercooler) direct from the Berkeley?

    As it is a finer micron strainer to capture sand, perhaps it requires a larger micron strainer like a Groco unit ahead of it to capture any larger contaminants??
    If its too loud.... Your too old....

    The Lee cooler is a great cooler, and actually does a slightly better job of cooling than the Super Chiller, but the Lee is more prone to clogging than the SC is. I have both, and the channels in the Lee are down right small compared to the SC. Just one of the reasons its more efficient.

    Plus jets are more prone to pushing stuff thru the chiller if plumbed from the pump, or even a drag system. Jets can go where V drives and I/Os dare not tread.

    A Lee cooler and a jet combo is the perfect application for a strainer.

    The Hardin is meant for intercooler use only.
