    Default SWTD pump intake help

    I want to set my intake but it doesn't seem right. I'm pretty sure its not the intake that came out of the boat. MPD marked 0 degrees and 4.5 degrees on the flange. When I set it in the existing hole the pump sits too far into the hull. If that makes any sense? Do I need to set my pump back. It seems like it needs to be set back about an inch, but if I'm going to set it back I'm going to go all the way and get the hand hole out of the boat. I need to get this done before sept 21.

    Most intakes are set into a bed of intake glue raising the elevation to match the botton of the hull. I use marine tex. Tap the front corners of the intake 7/16-20 and the holes just inside the transom of the intake. Use these to set the elevation of the intake in the boat. When the beding material drys remove the bolts and add your threw bolts to aid in holding the intake in the haul.

    Good luck, schick

    As mentioned, use the four corners with leveling bolts...but remember;
    There's a lot of measuring, measuring and more double-triple checking to be done 'prior' to setting ANY intake and ALL measurements are to be taken from under the the hull, outside transom and keel line > > > hit up the 'search' function and do your reading/research!

    For what it's worth...back when I set my intake research/feedback told me to use 'HD Sea Goin Poxy Putty' > people told me the Marine Text was a little "runny/thin and didn't have the body" of the above mentioned...just saying.

    Im not too worried about that part. i think I have a pretty good grasp on how to actually set the intake. I plan on using sea going epoxy putty. im more worried about the location of the pump if i set the the intake in the existing hole. It doesn't sit back where it should. here are some pics. i didnt get one of the bottom where the pump will actually hit the pod, but you can tell it sits too far forward.

    Default set back on swtd

    Ive done alot of research on setting the intake. centered, squared, and shoe even with the keel with no spacers. i think ive got that part? ive talked to a few people about. im pretty confident in that part. i think this is a different intake, not the one that was originally in the pump. i set it next to a stock intake and the flange is in a different location. im almost positive i need to set the intake back, towards the transom, at least an inch. but if im going to open up that can of worms, i might as well set it waaaay back. right?

    get a picture of the inside and measure the intake opening.

    That boat might of had an R intake in it. If it did, that will throw you way off as they are not the same.
    You don't want to set the pump back to get the hand hole cover outside the pod.

    Where are you located?

    When Jack machined my intake and I moved it back, he STRONGLY suggested to NOT bust all the way out of the bottom of the hull but to leave about an inch at the bottom > reason > "hull integrity".
    Unless it was a "race only boat" there's a better chance of water leaks and or some cracking that 'may' happen on a Lake/River boat that pounds through some waves etc.
    Can't tell but, there's about an inch under the hull.

    I am going to call Jack tomorrow. it is a low profile intake and i can tell it is throwing everything off. the motor would have to go forward too. or a shorter driveshaft. the groove where the bowl bolts to the suction housing is an inch inside the hull. i need to move it back an inch. im in san diego if theres anyone around here that wants to check it out?

    Whos low pro is it? Any pictures of it? the pics you posted does make it look like its wrong. With a standard intake the bowl bolts would be about a inch from the pod with out a transom adapter.

    The low pro will need to come out of the boat more. Tis is a picture of what a standard intake would look like without a transom adaptor.

    you should of stated that in the first post. The MPD intake is going to have to come back a few inches. Your going to have to make a plate to bolt to the front of the intake to plug the hole. Jack can give you the answers your looking for as can Chris at B1.
