OC hopefully we'll "silicone caulk and seal" this this Am and post up some pics of the finished product  later today or this evening for you all . Tom

How reliable is the caulking?  Sorry, the Mechanical Engineer side of me is coming out! :screwy:

Thats cool, If we had to fill huge gaps it probably wouldn't be the best way to do it.  But I cut the plates to fit real snug up against the housing, so i'll put a bead of caulk on the mating edge of the plate then finish it off with a nice clean bead on the outside.

you can see how tight the plates fit

I cut em small initially then take many many trips back to the bandsaw, this is also why we don't offer these plates for sale exept as an in house installation.

theres only one thing to plumb....the pipe going through the transom plate is your water inlet....which goes to your motor to cool it.

We usually run a ball valve infront of the header t to further regulate the water to the headers.
