Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Re: OTH gate valve

Your second valve off the block is on the wrong line. Should be on tour dump line. Gate valve off the pump is essentially  a safety in case ur water lines break , clamp fail etc. and should be wide open. The gate valve off your block on the dump line is to regulate flow and try to control temp. The Bassett tee if working correctly should be normally closed at idle. It will open once thereís more pressure to overcome spring pressure. If you are fighting milky oil you can always run a line to the drivers seat with a ball valve and back to the tee to control the water manually.

Jet Pumps / Re: Drop Snoot Advice

Yes  the ride plate is like an extension of the pump intake that sticks past the transom ur on the rite track. On my boat I tried wedges, nozzle angle, etc.... to get it  ride a lol drier it took installing a ride plate to get the boat out the water a bit. Everything improved after that. Fuel consumption and mph.

Without a ride plate  you might feel like youíre dragging the pump and boat will ride really flat. When the boat rides flat it doesnít load the pump properly. Forgot to ask if you have a loader or not. But that will help with keep the pump loaded. There are all different  types of loader depending on hp, hull type etc.....

Do you have a ride plate? If not and youíre trying to get the most mph out of her wedge it up so the boat rides dry. Be careful of the material on the bowl where the droop is bolted itís cast aluminum and can cross thread easily and be  a bad deal. I

Haha guess I struck a nerve, just my opinion  trying to save you some heartache  building that olds. But do what you want.  If you couldn't  maintain shevie,  good luck maintaining a jet  boat. Don't let  a woman blind you from a logical decision but it's ur $. Good luck on shore with ur olds as I skate past you in my chevy
