I'm pretty sure 3" but I'd have to look to be sure. It's been a while ago, but I'm pretty sure this (http://www.overtons.com/modperl/product/details.cgi?i=70749&pdesc=Detmar_Water_Resistant_3_Line_Blower&str=blower&merchID=1008&r=view) is the one I got.

Does anyone have an experience with this? http://www.boatersworld.com/product/MP63521525.htm

I have a gift card from Christmas, and have finally found something I need that is actually in stock.

4" blower is nice, but if you don't have the room to run the hose, it can be a b!+(&.
If the old hose is good, measure and go with it!

Factory location is for one, beside the starter/bellhousing with the vent tube running down the stringer attached to the exhaust hose/muffler with large cable ties to the starboard hole in the rear deck vent box. The front vent hose on the blower goes into the bilge between the stringer and the oil pan. The port hole in the rear deck vent box has a vent tube from it down to the hull under the gas tank for free flow venting.

I replaced mine this season with a rule 3" blower, a whole lot quieter than attwood, I pretty much run mine all the time, works great!
