I dont really know what size it is because i dont know if i measure inside to inside or what. If you could help me out that would be great.

Replace that ASAP.
If you stop quickly, water can rush into the exhaust and possibly into the engine.
Sorry, I can't help with the part no...

what about "relaxed" flappers?

I know we all relax a little with age, but I noticed mine stays open 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch or so.

they don't slap shut when I flip them:o


*edit
this is from skidim, and his look relaxed too:confused:

I've been told (don't know) that when the engine gets hot, with relaxed flaps, it can suck water in. As cheap as they are, it's enough reason for me to replace mine when they get old.

I don't get what you mean. If you mean, that when you look at the flapper, it doesn't close all the way...like when it is on the trailer, thats no big deal. Water pressure will keep those closed under water.
