20' inboard skiff, GM 350
there is not a square to spare below deck between the rails, it has a 1" inlet scoop which was piped to an unsupported upsidedown strainer about the size of a football,
from there thru the trans cooler and to a crank mounted pump
pump capacity is 5 gpm @ idle and 24 @ 4000 rpm
probably the bigger the reservoir capacity the better, but where is the min? is there a min?
I have seen some spin on style as small as 2 cups
thanks for any knowledge/insight

now i'm thinking about those other style strainers mentioned in the other post and doing away with the in line
thanks
