    SXR drop Nozzle Tube placement

    I want to drill the hull to install the drop nozzle trim cable tube on my SXR but I am wondering where. How far below the steering cable tube are you drilling? There doesn’t look like much room inside the engine compartment. Any pics or suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

    visualize where the cable should be in the pump cavity when the system is installed and drill there so the cable has as straight a path as possible.
    the hole inside the hull will be in line with it near the lower corner of the bearing housing.

    Re: SXR drop Nozzle Tube placement

    I have been racking my brain on this. It has to be below the steering cable in the pump cavity but there is not room inside the hull for it to come out. The only room is above the steering cable and I can’t cross over the tube for the steering cable. I am sure I am over thinking this hut seeing how you only get one chance I need to do it right. Thank you again for your help.

    There is a write up on here on how to do it with pictures. That’s what I followed and it worked out great.

    Hey veedubs
    Those are pics from my thread. If you guys locate the thread, there probably wont be any pics in it...due to the photobucket fiasco a few years ago. Maybe match veedubs saved pics to the verbage in my thread from way back???
    Anyways, that tube location is set up for the Solas pump drop nozzle system, which may be a slightly different location than other systems. The tube and rubber boots that go on each end came from Blowsion. It's not on their site, you have to call in and ask for the kit.
    As far as drilling, you have to locate the rear hole according to your specific drop nozzle system. Take your best aim and go for it. If I remember right, about 2° to the left and 2° up drilling from the rear. Drill until you hit the back of the bulkhead...don't drill through just yet. Whith the drill bit touching the back of the bulkhead, take a magnet (one of those super strong ones) slide it around on the front of the bulkhead until it finds the tip of the drill. If your satisfied with the final hole location, finish drilling through the bulkhead. Glue/silicone aluminum tube in...done
    I will admit...when I first started drilling, my balls shrunk a bit...lol I had a friend kinda eyeballing the line-up of the drill bit from the other end engine compartment area, also.

    Re: SXR drop Nozzle Tube placement

    On that engine compartment pic, you can see the "sharpie" black dot that I was aiming for. The magnet found the bit in the final location and I said, good enough! And drilled through.
    So there is a little room for bad aim, just not REALLY bad aim. Ha
    Good luck, give us a report when you are done.
