The WaterMota Pressure Relief Valve consists of the replacement parts for the water cooling pressure relief system as fitted to WaterMota engines with a Thermostat. The kit contains all the parts to replace a worn out or corroded thermostat bypass valve.
The pressure relief valve on the waterMota petrol engines is a very simple device, however, it is critical if you have a thermostat. It allows water to escape from the engine while the thermostat is closed. Water from the engine water pump is continually being pumped to the engine, however, while the thermostat is closed this water has nowhere to go, it, therefore, forces the pressure relief valve open and allows the water to escape out of the exhaust.
The pressure relief valve sits between the thermostat housing on the top of the engine block and the water inlet on the engine block. It is fitted between two WaterMota Pipe Connector (which are not included in this kit). Remove the old hose, relief spring and ball and replace them with the new kit, the pressure relief ball goes at the bottom and the pressure relief spring sits on top.
If you are fitting a thermostat for the first time, you must also fit this pressure relief thermostat bypass valve, you will require 2 x WaterMota Pipe Connector to fit into the thermostat housing and the water inlet.
The WaterMota pressure relief valve is suitable for the majority of WaterMota petrol engines including the WaterMota Sea Wolf Mk1 & Mk2 and WaterMota Sea Tiger Mk1 & Mk2 as long as they have a thermostat fitted.
