    Default Water hose on Alpha 1

    Is it possible to replace the water hose without removing the outdrive and the bellows? I had read where the 3/4" hose needed to be 13 inches, so I shortened it and now it has come off. Sooo - now I need a new hose and need to replace.

    You need to remove the u-joint bellows so you can access the top fitting where the hose is connected.

    Default water hose length

    If hose isn't supposed to be 13" what is the required length?
