I guess you could try and just fold them over. The tool just does the fold and curl back on both tangs at once.



The thing about the deutsch connectors is they are water tight. Where I needed to extend the pump leads I soldered and then used double shrink wrap on them.

The relay box fits nicely where you have it. That's where mine is factory.

Only if you were a Buckeye Jersey.

Nice work. I'd go for the connectors. If you ever have to swap out pumps it'll be easier to do on the water.

Very cool...love the fact you're using OEM parts. Planning on doing the same with the heater button (swapping out an ACC button) and armrest plate filler from GLS.

I have started to lay out some of the parts. I started by making a simulated mount out of a piece of scrap wood to check for clearances for the valves and thru hulls and also to verify the hole saw size. This made it easy to assemble the parts in the bilge area.
The rear valve will feed the starboard bag and the front will feed the bow bag.

I found something kind of interesting when I was looking at the pump mounting blocks, I was going to pre drill and screw the Johnson pumps to the transom blocks until I noticed right above the bocks are the thru hull bolted rear tie up hooks and this got me thinking.......no way would these be the same bolt pattern as the pumps??????
