Anybody got a pic of the WJ ?

I don't remember exactly how I found it but I've come acroos it a few times on accident. It's a website that shows almost every jet drive ever made, I think there might be a list of all the boat manufacturer's on the same web page... anyone know/seen WTF I'm writing about? I can't be the only person on this board to have seen that web page...

Ok , first part of the mystery solved.  Now what do you mean you have a berkley hull assembly  ??? , do you mean the transome adapter (the trim ring around the bowl) ?

sorry for using stupid terms lol i dont know exactly what everythings called. I have the berkely intake assembly. The part of the setup that is built into the bottom of my boat is berkely (white colored) and the jet itself is jucuzzi (black colored)  Someone back in the day took the berkely put of my boat and stuck a jacuzzi in it and they had to use this piece of crap sheet metal adapter plate to fill in the gaps. I would try to just use all the jacuzzi parts but for some reason the part that goes around the jet and mounts to the back of the boat wont sit flush against the boat so I guess im stuck using the adapter plate :-(

i could probably use a sealer but its like a 1/8 inch gap in some places. Maybe I could have a plate thats only slightly bigger than the mounting plate made and use that because the sheet metal plate looks like CRAP!!!

Hmmm, This dosn't sound good.  I think we need to see some pics !  The parts are, the intake ( the piece that bolts to the bottom of the hull )  The suction housing ( forward part of the pump that curves from the intake to the bowl) , the bowl, the transome adapter (trim ring that goes around the bowl and mounts to the transome (back of the boat) ), then the steering nozzel. Thats the basic version  ;) .  If you are sure you have a Berk intake than I dont think a Jacuzzi loader grate will work. Also you should look up inside the intake, if I remember right the WJ is smaller and shaped different than a Berk and there might be some ugly misalignment issues in there (bad for water flow).
 IMO, If its a berk intake, get a berk jet.   

 Dont worry, the real experts should be here in the am to help figure this out  :sly: .

before I removed the main jet assembly and sent it to my friend, I looked up inside of it and everything seemed to line up fine, but you may be right and I may be screwed. I hope to god not hehe.

Kind of hard to tell from the pics in the other thread, but someone might be able to help.

 Thanks for the link crewchief.

 Yea that looks like a Berk intake,  But it dont look like a Berk pump  ???



 The problem I see would be with a Berk intake you would need to use a loader for a Berk. And with a Jacuzzi pump on there I'm not sure that will work.  ??? ??? ???  Wheres Tom or Josh ?

Interesting, I'm gonna have to go with Jeff and say it looks like a Jac WJ on a Berkeley intake.  I took this picture once to show how similar the intake openings were.

looks like someone made a addaptor plate from a Berk intake to a Jacuzzi pump.
If this setup works a Berkley intake loader should work... or rework the pump and put an inducer on the impellor shaft to load the pump.
Sure Josh @JBP would help you out with either.
Welcome to the weird and wounderful stuff done with jets  >:D ;D
