    Default New T-Valve??

    Anybody bought a new one lately? I just got this one from CP, all my other ones had a small hole. Is this drilled out thing stock or did I get a used one that was Hacked up by somebody and returned? Called CP waiting for response. It does have the restricters that screw in is that why it has a bigger hacked up hole drilled? Just curious 1 step forward 2 back. Thanks Johnf

    Gotta hunch thats a repackaged Basset piece , that area doesnt look pretty but shouldnt affect the operation , however to my surprise it has that newer "relieif" milled in vs the older "plus sign" style (for lower spring seat to help dampen ball chatter and spring damage) ...
    Heres ours , the design is slightly differerent..

    Doesn't look like a Bassett t-valve on the inside or outside. Besides, Bassett casts there name right into the valve. Maybe a Rewarder repackaged or , dare I say it, an offshore knock off?

    There are a couple of things that I have used on water injected header over the years. I gave up on using the ball valve and just use a pick up on either the bottom of the boat or the cavitation plate to feed the water branches. I don't use a ball valve. This way as the boat gets up on plane there is enough pressure from the pick up to start feeding water to the headers. I use a .125" diameter restriction for each header. In the line that comes from the water pick up I put one of those cheap gas filters that has a see through housing to catch any garbage that might clog the restrictor jets. When we used to go to Clear Lake there was an issue with junk in the water ! With the glass shell on the filter you can see if it is getting filled up with junk and it is easy to take apart to clean. With this setup there are no moving parts and it is the closest that I have found to being trouble free and the water starts and stops as you come up and come off of plane.

    Looks like someone drilled it at the side, to allow water to pass the ball seat at an idle. If you don't also run a manual valve to over-ride or shut down most of the water, you can have an issue.

    That's a good idea. Do you have a pic of the pick up?

    Mine is just a regular #8 pickup that is the same as the pickup for the motor. It has a 1/2" diameter S/S tube cut at a 45 ° angle on the cavitation plate. I can take a picture of it when it warms up a little in the garage today if you want. The other thing that I did is put an other set of water branches for the vent holes on the new headers that I built. I try to keep my garbage skow half way clean ! As far as I am concerned the best idea that I came up with for this was the little gas filter. Before that I had trouble clogging the jet. I spent a lot of time in this boat and would be able to hear the difference in the sound before it blued the chrome.

    It's a HARDIN MARINE Stainless nice piece, Got it all hooked up should work just fine. The guy from CP Performance said the funky looking hole was from casting it and looks like that so if spring fails it won't run dry!!!(for what it's worth!!!!)
