12jc-a jetovator
« on: February 25, 2021, 09:17:48 AM »
I have the manual jetovator on the single bowl 12jc with aluminum a impeller, everything is sound and operating as it should( no vibrations, slipping, noises) has plenty of power and delivery from take off to pegged out but the place diverter doesnt seem to be throwing a rooster upwards at all.when its all the way up it throws the water more back and outward rather than up as ive seen others do with the same setup(different boat of course) ive adjusted the heim joint and lever so the nozzle is up as far as it will go,i had someone else drive while i observed it underway and the only thing i could think of is the pump looks to be under the water line more than ive seen others of similar design. Not sure if thats got something to do with it but im trying to get this setup to work as best so if anyone ones got some tips or tricks id really appreciate it.

That's a Place Diverter, it steers first and roosts second.
A Jet-O-Vater, Berkeley trademark, roosts first and steers second.
You have the better product.

It looks like there is a quarter of an inch more up travel, maybe more.
The handle has some adjustment as well as the cable mount on the Diverter.
The rudder only really works in the no wake zone, anything faster, and it scrubs speed. 5 squirt bötēs, not one rudder.

Hope this helps

Ahhh i see.thanks for the heads up, Good to hear. It has a little bit more to give at the heim joint but i didnt think the top lip of the nozzle should hit when all the way up. maybe im just not seeing it second hand because my friend says it throws good, from the boat it seem like it doesnt shoot upward tho.ill post some vidoes of it this weekend. Ok Ill try it without but the boats pretty fast already for what it is hahaha thanks again
