So i had to drop a new engine in my boat. I got to the point of installing the hose between the riser and the muffler. I purchased some shieldsflex II hose, it looked very similar to what was on the boat. So i get one side done and realize that the bend at the muffler is not tight enough where it comes up through the floor, so i wouldnt even be able to put the removeable floor piece back down, so that piece of hose is garbage cause its not long enough to bend that tight, so i try again with a new piece and i just cant get the hose to conform to the shape i want. Then it is jammed so tight against the engine/trans mount in back.
is there suppose to be a 45 degree elbow where hose comes up from floor?
