Snorkles

Tryin' to take my Zook for a swim. She's still learnin' but we want to go deep. Anyone do a snorkle job on their Zook? If so what else do I need to do to the engine's electrical to be able to do some good river crossing? I'll take any tricks you know...

Re: Snorkles

i've not needed one on mine yet, the previous owner took it swimming and before the water got to the stock airbox the whole truck started floating downstream, so he backed out of the water. the factory airbox and computer and battery are pretty high up.

Re: Snorkles

That's a cool story about you buddy floating away. Maybe those 36"ers will help mine stay afloat. What I should be looking for is a propeller...

Re: Snorkles

I use the driverseat as a gauge. I can swim till my butt gets wet. As long as I stop there the engine is fine. My Zook has plenty of natural drains thanks to rust, so those of you lucky enough to have a solid tub shouldn't use my method.

Re: Snorkles

I think even with the computer completly submered and ruined they still run but not just idle very good The stock air intake is actualy a impressive unit! Its no snorkel though. We have yet to drown ours but have been real close.

I attached a shot of Joel in the drink , he went in even father but finaly decided to back out.
