Because of over capacity, hitting ramps hard and hitting waves My car
fills with water at times. Bell housing is not water tight, but still
does darned good job of holding water. I have thought about drilling
hole in bottom of bell housing to drain water- Any thoughts? *** Scott

trade for one? Later Dave the Wave

Dave,
On one of my test runs last fall, my bell housing filled up almost
to the top. This was due, I think to a hole near the top of the
housing that looks to be non factory. Yes I had a lot of water
coming in but remember, this was a test.
I had to siphin it out as A) It's not supposed to be there and B)
water was being thrown out via the spinning clutch. If you drill a
hole near the bottom of the housing of course water will come in and
drain out. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?
Maybe a better way to look at this is to prevent excess water from
hanging out in your bilge. How about a high water alarm. Doesn't
Woodcock or Friese sell them?

Yes, I have those water alarms in stock. They sell them for $20,
delivered. It's a good idea to try to keep water out of the clutch
system. It can't dry out very easily and there's plenty of stuff to
rust in there.
