Jet Pumps / pump chatter noise at idle?
« on: November 11, 2012, 08:03:46 PM »
I may be picking up a 1996 ultra bubble deck on tues, the owner told me it had a weird chatter knock type noise at idle, I went and checked the boat out today, he hooked up water and started it up for me, I only heard the noise once just at idle, sounded as if the impellor shaft was jumping around in say a worn out type bushing or bearing, the pump is a set back berkley, not sure which model but it was a split bowl with a fairly small examine hatch type lid on the outside of the hull, he showed me reciepts of 600+ dollars spent on rebuilding the pump just before last season, only concern I have of the boat, it has a tom papp blown big block in it and runs in the 80mph range, just seeing if its a big issue or a normal type noise? Thanks for any input

Jet Pumps / energized wj potential?
« on: September 10, 2012, 12:05:19 PM »
I picked up a BNIB energizer kit for a grand, it has everything they would normally come with, my pump is a wj, I'm basically trying to see what else I can do to it before putting it back in to get more out of it, bigger intake? Massage the dominator bowl? Change the A impellor it came with? Add a droop snoot? Add a place divertor? All these things I'm not sure of and trying to do this once.

My boat is a 1975 omega 19' with a big block ford roughly 500 hp, I'm looking for a higher top speed is all, it runs right around 55 mph right now and is crazy fast out of the hole, the pump is 100% stock and tired, what can I be expecting to get out of the fresh energized kit? Any info will be greatly appreciated.

Projects / 1975 omega BBF project

New to this forum and boats in general, pick this up at the beginning of the summer for a grand, brought it home and soon realized I was going to tear it completley down, I have a 460 ford, dove-c block and heads, ported and polished gasket matched runners, healthy cam, offenhauser tunnel ram with 2 predator carbs, basset wet twisties, and a custom scoop I made at my shop. The boat launches hard out of the hole but only does 55 or so on the gps, I'm looking to pick up a wj energizer kit for my jacuzzie pump, any other suggestions on what I can do for improvments will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for looking!
