BBC water injected headers
« on: March 22, 2022, 11:52:19 am »
I?m building a 73 southwind and I?m stumped on water to the headers , my cam will suck the water in to the chambers , What is anyone running to help prevent water in at an idle , and yes i know to put a valve for when ur idling but I won?t remember all the time so any valves or pressure regulators you guys using ?

Are you aware of the Bassett T valve? It can give a mist at idle depending on water pressure from the jet. Restrictors can be inserted into the inlet of the water injection lines to lower the volume as well.

I am but I?ve heard that a lot don?t run those just because they have had tiny rocks get sucked into them and can cause them to get stuck open and hydro lock their engines

Brought back memories of back in the day the semi heated, yet fun Convo about the the water coming in through regulator or just a regular valve. Something like that. Lol Good times! Lol

I am a big believer in the t valve. Worked well for me and friends. Sure things can fail or have issues(like everything we run) but the t valve is solid.

I?ve never heard or read about the rocks getting through keeping it open. Not to say it can?t happen. I?ve read about springs breaking and rusting. I usually take the valve apart at the beginning of the season to check it out and spray some WD40 on it. I have a ball valve on my tstat housing to shut off and regulate how much water goes through the hose to feed the water injection lines.

There use to be a thing called the Banderlog valve.

I found this thread from 2011

Here?s another one about it

Like FordLover says, something can go wrong with anything. My wife reads reviews before we buy stuff. She?s always complaining about how one review says ?It?s the greatest thing ever!? Then the next review says ?It?s the worst thing ever!?

Gate valve vs ball valves vs gate valve on the dump vs no valve vs regulator?.

Yeah, there where plenty of discussions. Good points on both sides. In my opinion, no boat is exactly the same and there so many variables that it is kind of hard to have a standard.
I think in some cases, they didn?t make that much of a difference to notice.

I just had a thread on this on the Facebook page asking about a msd rpm switch to a 12 volt gate valve. Apparently a bunch of people do that. I?ve got a 460 with TT headers and a Bassett T valve and I?m gonna switch it
