    VST Delete (TinyPic.com sucks!)

    So I am rebuilding my 225 Pro Max and going with a VST delete while doing so. I had researched and saved a few S&F links with detail and pics. Unfortunately the pics are gone due to Photobucket and TinyPic folding. I always did hate photobucket!

    Could anyone put up a few pics of their setup as a reference? Also what products they use. I get a lot more from visuals vs. verbiage. Looking for ideas in regards to placement and layouts. Thanks in advance!

    Eliminates the VST tank on Mercury EFI engines. Along with the space taken, weight, and lack of obsolete parts associated with the VST setup.

ID:	453209 I had a Weldon pump given to me, ordered -6 fuel lines and a regulator from Amazon. Works pretty well, but I find the motor is far more susceptible to fuel slosh than it was before, the vst tank likely helps with that. Used a Mercury oil pump delete kit as well. Also, there is a pulse port in the engine block that I missed when I first got the engine running, ended up threading the hole and installing a bolt to seal it up.


    Edit: sorry, thought I had another picture of the complete system installed. Plus, not sure why that one is sideways.

    That looks like a pretty slick setup on the promax!

    There was one or two threads I had saved but the pics are not available anymore. That TinyPic program has deleted them. Mr. Paul (Pkstv) has helped me out tremendously! Bonus...he has a Grandsport and a ProMax combo for me to compare.
