Junking my vac pump and running hoses from the valve covers to the exhaust, but having a hard time finding the right check valves at the auto parts store to thread to the new inlets on the exhaust tips...

Any info greatly appreciated!! Long Beach is only a few days away!

Thanks,

This is my opinion only but I think a properly installed pan evac system is plenty for a lake race boat. I think a pump is over kill and just not necessary for a lake boat. And definitely not worth the 500 or so bucks for 30HP and more crap to maintain..

Jeff, thanks a lot, but the headers are already set up for the hoses. I just need one more of the check valves. I think I found it, but gotta get it Fed Ex'd today.

See you Saturday. Thanks a bunch for the offer!!!

At this time, I am not selling the pump. Interested primarily in reliability at this time, I'm trying to simplify the system (one less thing to break), but will hold verdict until I see if there is any noticable performance gain or loss.

I'm with Vince on this one. On a pure NA race boat, yea we always ran one. Lake boat, pan-evac's or a puke tank are the better solution. Breathers are the easiest, but I always had an issue with the oil ooze making a mess.
