Re: [DMCForum] Re: That darn water return pipe



It's definitely in input because it feeds the centre of an impeller
which works by flinging the water outwards. The pipe connects to a
length of flexible hose which drops down to the chassis over the
exhaust, but the fact that it's sitting directly in the "V" will mean it
will get pretty hot there. I think the reason there's a solid pipe there
is simply so the feed to the engine is accessible when the engine's
brand new and sitting in its crate. It also feeds through an area with a
number of rough or sharp-ish edges that would threaten a flexible hose.
On balance, a solid steel pipe will last longer than a length of hose IMO.
