What gauge and what sender?? I had an automated gauge in my buggy and a cheapo sender. Same deal cruising be 80psi step on it it'd drop all the way to 20 if I got on it hard. Switched to automated gauge works perfect now. Just an idea. Doesn't hurt to try.

I have a mechanical gauge on the motor and electronic gauge on the dash both were similar but the mechanical reacted a little quicker

Put the engine back in after changing the pan the other day, glassed the fuel tank back in, and finished up all my electrical. Just a few odds and ends left to do.

Just curious as I have the same hull.
Most of my boats worth was in the installation hardware.

Haven't  done anything to it,yet,




but I'm waiting on it. My brother went to Gilbert Arizona to pick it up for me.  He says it's beautiful boat. 20.5 Carrera w/ MerCruiser outdrive. That's my next lake rod. We'll see.

Pulled my motor to replace the u joints. I have never pulled a motor before so it was a great learning experience. Amd went pretty quick and smoothly. Hope it goes back in as smoothly and hoping to get it put back in tomorrow

That's one of the reasons I love jet boats the ease of pulling and installing motors. Replaced flexplate and starter.

Out with the old... In with the new...

After watching the video Brian Forester sent me of my starting line performance, the wasted motions and time killed with the cable fwd/rev... Air operated became an apparent must. Plus adding a couple bleed holes to be able to adjust to keep the boat from going backwards.
