jamie mac created the topic: closed cooling











i recently installed a closed cooling system from ppt and i am really looking forward to trying it out. my mechanic buddy has installed alot of them and he said mine was a little more expensive but was by far the best quality one he had installed. the boat was used one summer in salt water raw water cooled and when we pulled thermostat housing and elbows and risers they looked like new which was a big relief.

You will love the convenience of closed cooling, for a few reasons. First being that your internals will stay in much better shape and last longer and also, winterizing takes 1/2 the time. Took me maybe 30 minutes to winterize mine including a drain and fill on the block (only cuz i didnt know the condition of coolant when we bought the boat). The overflow is a nice feature too and am considering adding it to my setup.

Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but always enough to do it right the second time.

Sounds like it would be a great addition but I would have to get another boat just to carry it in as there is not enough room in the engine compartment as it is to change your mind let alone anything else :)
