Okay, before I get the sawzall out I figured I should stop and ask the experts. How the heck do you remove and replace the 'collector box' that sits behind the louver vents that connect to the engine compartment blower hose? I thought replacing this old noisy blower would be a ten minute job. You think I would know better by now!

I will get a picture later today. On my 2556, I have two hoses connected to a collector box behind the starboard vent louver. This box has a 3" hose running down to the front part of the engine and a 4" hose that connects to the engine blower and then down to the rear lowerpart of the engine. I want to replace these hoses together.

Please help!

Ha mgm1986, welcome to cboc, and thanks for the great question.Is their any way you can just get a 4 inch inline blower, and buy some new 4 inch blower hose, then you could have a short piece of hose running in the engine room like you want, install the inline blower, and then just run your other piece of hose into your collector boat. If the collector box has 3 inch fitting, you can buy a adapter from 3 inch to 4 inch blower hose.I know that you can buy a adapter at home depot in the dryer hose section. Hope this helps, but if you could post a picture that would tell us a 1000 words, in helping you solves this problem. good luck.
