Put a transom water pickup on my boat to try and cool down the motor. I also put an aluminum water jacket. Here is my question, i ran a larger tube to the jacket first then to the esc. then out. Is this cool? I figured the esc was NOT getting hot so i ran the fresh water to the motor first. I dont have a duel outlet so i did this. I just have my rudder intake shooting out a small bent tube right now. Looks like a jet ski. Hoping the new jacket and larger tube will keep it cooler????? What you guys think about the esc getting the water second?
Guess I'll just run the heck out of it and see...
Generally speaking the ESC will run cooler than the motor, so it is common to run to ESC first, then to motor. The theory being the water leaving the ESc will only be slightly warmed and have lots of cooling ability left to strip heat from the motor.
I would suggest, in reality, as long as you have adequate flow through the cooling loop it will probably still cool OK.
I would pick up anouther water outlet. The are cheap insurance! Lol
TRying to find one. For some reason im having trouble
Get the aluminium ones. I reckon they look much better.
