 :banghead: ok guys hears the deal built my motor up a couple seasons back and it has been flawless. have taken it to el cap 3 times this season with no issues but decided to make a trip to the river and started blowing oil out the breather and getting warm not hot but ran up to 180 which it never does! :screwy: so i pulled up to the sandbar and took a quick look I had oil on the driver side only coming from the valve cover breather so I just decided to enjoy the weekend get a tow, trailer it, and catch a ride with friends. now im home and pulled the plugs number one cylinder got hot but all other plugs look fine can someone help shed some opinion on this. should I tear it down? it doesnt even wanna crank over now and the motor only has like 100 hours maybe!......Mike

Thanks brad I was just on the phone with tom at jbp. I saw on forums that ralph is running into issues with his hitting the swim step so I think im gonna have to go with the low profile elite model there goes $800 bucks! I was hoping I could convert a standard PD to low profile but tom sais its not worth it its too expensive  :-\ just gonna suck it up and buy a new one I think :banghead:.

Ralph this is not good news we have the exact same boat and I am getting ready to do this same project if you have any pointers at this point let me know! I never thought this would be a problem but I may go with the elite low profile version to avoid this issue!

Thanks Tom, Im sure I will be in touch. This project does not seem overwhelming just wanna make sure I take all the proper steps and complete this pump properly and now seems to be the best time to install that place divertor ive been wanting so let me know guys if anyone has a descent deal going on one.

Ok guys I think its time for a pump rebuild. Last season started getting some whining out of the pump and tried to pull a tube and the boat just fell on its face cavitating matter of fact if I tried to hole shot it it would just cavitate but if I slow rolled it and got it up on plane it would get me where I need to go and still maintain a great top speed 62-65 mph. Be honest I already have a gutt feeling anyway! I wanna do this rebuild myself I just enjoy knowing every nut and bolt I havnt done one in the past but wouldnt mind saving the money on a pump rebuild from a local shop. give me the need to knows!

Thanks guys!
Ok heres the low down
1. started with a bucket of water washed the boat well with some meguires car wash
2. fresh pail of water with a little dawn liquid soap and started wet sanding with 1000 grit for first cut, as your rubbing boat water gets milky but you can feel the paper working at first it is a little sticky and ruff but as you work paper you can feel the finish smooth out. I continued the same way with the rest of the boat.
3. fresh pail of water some more dawn and performed same steps with 2000 grit. paper feels the same i kept working till i got same smooth consistency over the whole boat.
4. washed the boat completely down with meguires car wash again.
5. spent some money here, went to harbor frieght and bought a variable speed buffer actually a really good deal 37 bucks and it comes as a kit with some wool pads and terry cloth pads I ended up spending about 75 bucks cause i purchased some extra wool pads and a pack of terry clth towels.
Ok next step and I think it was the best I used a finishing compound made by 3M called "finesse it" its designed as a fine rubbing compound for removing swirls in high end paints it definetly did the trick on the boat you can get it at most detail supply houses.
Started out with a wool pad at lower speeds to apply and would slowly increase speed to buff out it worked terrific.
6. After completely buffing boat washed again with meguires car wash and dried.
7. last but not least I used a cleaner wax from west marine i was gonna use meguires but i heard that there house brand works really well so i gave it a try im happy with the outcome used the buffer in the same fashion as the finish compound for application only i buffed by hand with terry cloth towels and thats about it hope this helps
