Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Re: Oil in my water
« on: August 17, 2019, 11:28:01 PM »
Was your oil a total milkshake or just show signs of some water? Iíve seen condensation build up under the valve covers but it didnít totally milkshake the oil.
If you have only 10 psi and your temp is only 130* when running, I wouldnít think water pressure is the issue. A lot of jet boats can run that valve open all the way with no issue.  But I think the Olds can be prone to what was mentioned with the intake. With my ball valve at about 60%,  my temp gauge will drop to 100* while running, idles around 180*. Thatís not uncommon for a open cooling jet boat.
I would think your valve is good. But if you do try to close it done, keep an eye on your water temp, especially at idle.

There you go. Solid advice and a tutorial in jet pump care and operation. I wasnít sure about the bolts in the middle of the driveshaft, thatís why I mentioned the ones on the flywheel.
Good luck. Let us know what you find.

I do not know. Sounds like i should try your way haha. Being careful not to drop them in the flywheel cover ofcourse

Kind of the blind leading the blind here.

I was hoping someone with more experience would chime in. But that is the easiest way I can think of to separate the two. That way you can isolate and see where the resistance is coming from and go from there.
Unless itís both. Then you just need to figure out how many organs you can sale and still live.

So there should be 4 bolts that hold the driveshaft to the flywheel. If you can get those off, itíll separate the jet from the motor. The only problem is getting them if you drop them in the flywheel cover.
If you take it apart at the yoke, would that give you enough room to turn each side separately?

What kind of boat and jet? Are you able to post some pics of the back of the motor? 
Random thought, is there a loader or rock grate in the intake of the jet?

I think i have to disconnect the yoke?

Sent from my SM-N960U using SoCal Jet Boats mobile app
However you can disconnect the pump. You should be able to turn the pump by hand. It might be a bit tight. Then you can try to start your motor. It will give you a direction to start.
If you disconnect the yoke, will that let you spin the jet? You should be able to slide the coupler down on the pump shaft to maybe give you enough room. Is there no access to get the driveshaft off of the flywheel?

When you say ďwater coming thru my headersĒ are you talking about raw water coming out of the end of the collector at idle. If so, that is too much.
Have you taken the tee valve apart? There is a ball and spring in there. They can stick or the spring can break allowing too much water to go into your headers.

When I first got my boat, I was getting water in my oil. I backed off the ball valve on my jet inlet and havenít had an issue since. So yes, inlet pressure from the jet can be an issue. But you do have a bypass system so just make sure it is working correctly.
Do you have good flow coming out of the dump line (where the cooling water line exits the hull)?

Hopefully that is it. If not, at least it was 2 things fixed. Tubing and skiing before work, a heck of a way to start the day.

Electric or mechanical pump? Do you happen to have a fuel pressure gauge that a passenger could watch while you run it?
Do you have the float set so you have enough fuel in the bowl for wide open runs?  Maybe itís coincidence that one side does it more.

Assuming the leak happens just sitting in the water not underway?

When I first got my boat I had water spraying out the passenger side of motor. I had new water lines and everything was tight. I ended up having a cracked block at the water jacket on the driver side. Water would leak into the bilge and hit the flywheel spraying to the opposite side of where the problem was.

Jet Pumps / Re: Split Bowl Conversion
« on: July 21, 2019, 09:10:35 AM »
The bowls are interchangeable. But a JG has a nozzle adapter. Other than that, it's basically the same.
Jet Boat Performance sells JC bowls converted to JG. You need to call them but they might take your old JC as a "core" if it is in good condition.  Or they can convert yours. It's best to give them a call.

That might help. Also, the Facebook group gets a lot more traffic. If youíre on fb, join the SCJB public group. Everything helps.

Sometimes if you give info on the when and who you sold it to, it might help jar some memories.
Did you sell it to someone local?
