Exhaust Tips w/o Exterior Flapper

On additional note: I just received a response from Rex Marine and they DO NOT have the exhaust tips in 3". They do have reducers but there would be cutting involved to get it through the transom. No Thanks!!

So unless someone knows of another option, Hardin will be the place to purchase if I pull the trigger on these.

On that note: anyone have any problems will back flow if the exterior flapper is removed?

Hello Double D, I am going to see if my friend at his machine shop can cut some of these tip's out of some 6" round stock. I am in need of some plastic one's also. If you have some time to wait a week or so I can find out what it will cost to have them made. I will keep you up to date if you like.

No problem when I had them on my '08. Or was it my '05? Either way, no problem.

I can wait. Let us know. The internal flapper could be interesting...

Where would you use plastic ones?

My tip's are made of plastic (not stainless)with a flapper. The boat I have it a "80" MC. I dont think the could put an internal flapper on them. If they can be made I will use the external flapper only. If this is the type of tip you are looking for?
Here is a pic of one of mine.

DD, thank you for posting as you are going along. You have saved me needless work. Does the Hardin bolt pattern match up? I dont think I'm going to bother going through with it if I have to drill a new round of holes in the hull.

JF, good question and I don't have the answer yet. I was told that the three holes are at 120 degrees to each other. So a little work with a protractor should tell us something.
I can tell you that I was concerned that I would be going from a 8 screw (bolt) pattern to a 3 screw pattern. But then I saw the picture of the back of an X-something and remembered my original photo on this post (below), and they both have only three (3) attachment points.

First person with a protractor and time to check, let us all know. I used to have one in my board drafting days..... I wonder where its at.....

Well, I can actually do one better for checking the hole pattern. Attached is a PDF file of a CAD drawing I did of the tip with the holes located. Print this 8 1/2" x 11" copy off to scale (no shrink to fit) and line them up.

First one who can try it let us know.
