View Full Version : intake hoses

09-06-2011, 08:38 PM
Can anyone tell me where this intake hose is supposed to go? One of the 2 3" hoses goes under the floor for the engine intake. The other is just laying on the floor. I just noticed it crawling in the front taking stuff out for winter. Are they both supposed to go under the floor? The hole to go under the floor seems too tight for both of them. Is the one supposed to just lay there? Maybe to vent the closed bow?
Thanks for your answers.

Tuck it back under the floor- it comes from the scoop in front of the windshield and it profides fresh air to the bilge so combustible fumes can't accumulate.

ok, thanks Jim. Thats what I was thinking. I wasnt 100% sure because the hole leading to the bilge is really tight for 2 hoses; it almost crushes them if I put both in. Ill come up with a clean way to get both of them in there and not crush them.
