Does anyone know what the hose in the picture goes to or where it is supposed to connect on a Bravo 1 outdrive?
I was doing a routine checkup on the outdrive (fluid level, bellows, etc.) and found this broken connector in a loose hose. it is clamped and points down toward the lower unit, but I don't know what it's for or where it is supposed to connect to. Help would be appreciated, thanks.
As far as I know, the speedo works off of a stainless pickup tube down under the stern.. I thought that the speedo worked by the incoming water pressure from that pickup tube. Are you saying that this rubber hose works in conjunction with that somehow?
That makes sense now. I probably need to look up under the dash and try to determine if the 'stock' drive setup is still run that far, or if the rest of the hoses have been removed etc. I know that the PO put in a larger, water filled gauge, so he probably had the pickup replaced/bi-passed as well.
My Bravo One looks similar and boy do I need help!
I see what you guys have said about the little hose part but mine looks like it has nothing inside. Also what is supposed to connect to the large hole just above that? It looks like it goes from out outdrive to the boat? A hose of some sort. I am a total newbe at this boat stuff. But a hole in a boat does not sound like a good idea. We were also getting our boat ready for the Summer and found these pieces missing/broken. Is this fix something that a total green boater can handle? We are the second owners of this boat.
Thank you so much for your assistance.
