Upgraded to 2” on my new porty. But the way it was designed there’s no way to get a nut on the back of the 2” starter. I want to make a shield for splash instead since I can’t use a 90. Anyone know what glue/sealant works ok with rotomolded plastic?
This is the mod you suggested, and man it makes a massive performance difference. I’m not sure with only one 6.6 I’ll have enough but I’m going to give it a go!Pics?
Hum I didn’t think of adding it on the stack itself, good idea.You can use the stack itself to hold a deflector. L bracket on top of stack holding a plastic or aluminum plate to block incoming water from ball cage. Hardware store sells basic taps with drill bit. 1/4-20 very common but 10-24 would do. Many ways to do it. Just take it off before drilling it so pvc bits dont fall into the motors. Could even hose clamp a L bracket in place of drilling. But will likely get knocked off. Worth a try.
No it doesn’t leak. I used lexel on the threads. Without a nut on he back I was concerned with it coming loose. So today I used the lexel on the threads and tightended it up.Its leaking air there? Just use silicone. I used permatex rtv blue from automotive store. Or any 100% silicone should do it. Depot has Rain Ready 100%. Sets in 30 min. Ide silicone both inside and out.
Plumbers one. It should. Its used on plastic trap and pvc. It gets real tacky. You have some working time with it. But it will turn solid as a rock. But ide get silicone behind that front nut first if possible.2 part epoxy sticks and I go way way. I may go pick on up. I’m not sure it will stick to plastic but it will dry hard and shouldn’t allow the barb to turn.
See how it runs after its cured. I dont know if your splash sheild will hold up. Is that mylar duct insulation? It might get sucked around the intake. It gets pretty rough in there when gulps of water come crashing though. If it does just switch to a piece of lexan. It cuts easy scar with blade and snap. Polycarbonate will work too but needs to be cut with a saw. Youll want air space above and below. If water fills up and touches bottom it will pull against intake sealing it off.I don’t need any additional glue the lexel made it super tight. I glued in a splash shield. It’s not pretty but in there tough.
