I installed a PP and I'm just not feeling the recommended installation location of the throttle servo. Instructions are to put it on a water pump hose with hose clamps.

Anyone with a V drive of my vintage ('03 X30) that has a PP servo installed differently? I'd sure like to hear about it. Even see a photo.

Thanks.

No complaints about the dirt:)...that's how it looked when I got it.

If the MCOCD is strong with you, I would be tempted to make an aluminum bracket that comes off a threaded hole piggybacked to another bracket on the engine.

Never seen one installed differently from above. They work great there and the install is easy.

Yep our X-9 is the same. I did move it slightly, but on the hose it sits. Thought they would mount them on a bracket or something more substantial, but apparently not.

Never seen one before but if thats how they recomend it be installed......Im at a loss for words.

That being said, Id install it like that then promply say im going to mount it properly later when I have time.

Then it would probably work well as is, and I would never end up making a mount for it.

I'm sure 1000's of them are installed off of the hose, and that's where mine is now. But, an alternate mounting location will run through my brain probably nonstop.

Blackhawk-I'll take another look for a bracket location on the engine. My initial thought was something off of the fiberglass lip aft of the center cover...

We had the same thought when installing ours so we mounted it to the new engine dividers we made with big zipties. I'm sure it will be a little bit of a PITA when I have to pull the engine dividers out but it looked cleaner to me and we've never had a problem with it. Please disregard the dirt and grease stains :o we had just finished making and mounting the new dividers and lift struts.

That's how mine was installed from the factory

Mine looks just like the predator engine above. I was a little concerned about putting it there at first but I have gotten used to it.

Make sure you mount it out of the way somewhere. That thing gets really, really hot. I made the mistake of touching the heatsink once.
