#3's are really sturdy compared to Bravos. My buddy's fountain had #3's and even with 540 blown engines they never got more than just warm to the touch. The reason Bravos get warm is because they have a cone clutch inside. If the clutch starts to slip the heat builds.

My engines are naturally aspirated so, I'm not running any superchargers or intercoolers, but I have 2 water pick-ups. One is a transom mounted pick-up which is strictly for cooling the engines and exits out the very end of the tailpipes and the other is the low water pick-up from my Bravo One drives which runs in through the drives, into the boat via a -12 braided hose and then immediately dumps back out on top of the top caps of my drive using a 45* Areoquip fitting. I'm not sure if there is a provsion for on the 3 or 3A's.

Ratman, Crazyhorse/Dave has drive showers on the 3A drives he has on his 38' Cig...perhaps he can post a picture on here for you. I will PM you his phone number. Otherwise, Simreck Corporation may have a drive shower available for the 3/3A.

#3's do NOT have any water pick-ups.

I came across this looking back through some of my stuff on a set of #4s.
