Had the pleasure of working on this bitchin boat . Boat is at place divert and controls for a laundry list of thing that the owner wanted done and fixed .
Fuel tank switching unit by Imco , trouble shoot the up down switch for the Diverter bildge pump float , drill and tap a drain hole in the transom lol yes it didnít have a drain lol that must be fun taking the boat into good ol California lol  . Tim made a bitchin bracket for the forward rev handle that mounts up inside the gunnel and bolts everything up nicely . I love working on these type of boats as I treat it like itís my own . Big shout out to Tim and Scot place and Place Diverter and Controls for letting me work on these bad ass boats .

I am still in possession of the boat. I have been in regular contact with Tom who won the boat. He's not in a rush to get it due to it being winter.

I worked on it a few weekends ago. Finished up all the wiring under the dash, fixed an issue with the hydraulic pump wiring, ran all the fuel lines, and re-installed the headers with gaskets.

I just need to finish running the water lines and put some oil in it, then take it out and give it a shake down so all is good when I hand the keys over to Tom, which should be within the next few weeks once I find some time.

Thank for your info very much appreciated,  I will get pictures tonight when I get to the shop, I have 2 fins I pulled off a flatbottom  v drive  one is bronze the other aluminum  probably  not something  I should use  as far as the pump it was set up by George at ARS it has a stainless impeller and an inducer, blueprinted bowl , the clean out has been welded longer to take out cavitation  and has a loader scoop for the intake , I do have a droop snoot and a new nozzle with the red insert and a ride plate I made about 24inches long ,I do not have a shoe the sanger came from the factory  with a small plate so I made a longer one , I was doing some bouy to bouy practice at my river I run at the boat seems to slide a lot in the turn when I give it full own it digs and turns but sometimes  hops and I spin out with tons of water in the boat will the fin help with the hop or dig more and flip , also what about an oil cooler drag racing I didn't need one thank you Bob really want to be competitive  but most of all Safe
I would try putting a rudder on the pump and see if that helps with the turning ??? Easy and cheap lol . The turning fin will help keep the boat stable on the turn as this is what itís for , when the nose of the boat drops the fin will keep it from wondering all circle boats have these . Do u have an inducer ??? As I said before this will help keep the pump loaded at all rev ranges ??? As for the oil cooler itís a must , extra oil . And u can control the temps better . Also do u have a pressure valve to keep ur water pressure steady???

I have a turning fin that came off a Rogers . U donít need cave plates on a jet boat as the Diverter will set the boat up , ride plate is a must . Ur gona want to get ur pump set up with the tightest clearance possible and run an inducer as well as this will help keep the pump loaded at all times . Send some pics of the rear of the boat so I can see the chimes on it .

Ok thank you ,do you race comp jet ?  Not sure about a lot of things about circle racing , I drag race my boat but the oil doesn't get hot enough  for a oil  cooler ,  I do run my boat pretty hard I have an oil temp doesn't seem to get to hot though, any more  2 cents would be great thanks
I run a v-Drive and my boat is an ol GN race boat . I built the motor to run max rpm all day long lol my temp with the oil cooler runs about 120-130 and am happy with that . If ur gona run circle then u will most definitely need it , also run a double oil filter application as it will help big time on cooling as well . Put it this way I run Parker dam to dam wot and never lift lol 17 miles of pure joy lol . Some pics of my boat then and now lol

My .2 cents brother is to buy a new one . I bought a used one and had to replace the caps as they were corroded and were leaking and had to get the tube bundle ultrasonic cleaned as there was build up in the tubes . After all that I could of bought a new one for another couple of hundred more .
