I have a 79 Rogers jet boat with 454, berkeley jet, bassett o/t headers. Can't figure out why there is more water coming out one of the pipes than the other. not trying to start a plumbing thread, I've gained alot of insight reading through all of the threads on that subject, and I'm sure she is plumbed correctly. I have no other issues (high block pressure, overheating, temp too hot/cold, nothing). Just don't know why the water coming out of pipes is not equal. On one side the water/mist "comes in" before the other side and mist dries out before the other side. I'm talking sometimes like a 3-5 second difference. Once I'm up to speed, water/mist is equal as far as I can tell. If there are any threads on this subject, just list them please.
I have found a few ideas of how to fix the issue, but don't know the pros/cons of them
1.Ball valves right before each of the spider lines.
2.Install "jets" in the AN fittings at the spider lines.
3.Make one side of hose from Bassett T shorter or longer.
4. Any better ways to fix???????
Water is plumbed:
In from pump to 1/2 gate valve (always wide open) ~~ 1/2" hose
Then to a tee, with both sides going to tees installed in water inlets on front of motor ~~ 5/8" hose
Then both continue to top ports of Hardin Marine 4-port thermostat ~~5/8" hose
Out bottom 2 ports of thermostat both to 2 overboard dumps (no valves) ~~ 5/8" hose
1/4" ball valve off water port top of intake manifold ~~ 1/2 hose
To Bassett T (that I put 2 SS washers in to increase pressure) Because water was still misting out of pipes at idle, even if water was cut way down on inlet from intake manifold (almost off).
Then from Bassett T to spider lines on headers. ~~ 1/2" hose
Thanks for any ideas.
