  1. 4xoverland on YouTube has a bit on turbo a 1hz. A few dos and a lot of don’ts... run light psi and get and EGT gauge. Thin crowns easy to pop and overheat if not careful. Result was general improvement open road driving
  2. It wont fit but 1zz are getting popular for mini boats
  3. 1. Yes 'cavitation' is the water boiling because your're drawing too much vacuum into the unit than what you can flow out the back end. It sounds like you're driving a concrete mixer. 2. From what I read the solution is to drive the jet unit off the back of the clutch, typically have to manufacture a bellhousing up for a new shaft. 3. If in doubt, right foot...
  4. A few have done it but its a hassle, most dont even go there and get jetski running gear to drop in.
  5. The early prototype Hamilton was a centrifugal type but his real innovation was to get the axial design to work. Who manufactured the pump that is on it?
  6. Looks to be an axial jet but the older 'rudder style' nozzle?
  7. Everyones getting squirts! Mean.... Thought about re-hulling it? Those Wattscraft kits are pretty cheap.
  8. That's pretty cool... Bunch of guys with the super tiny boats run JS300 engines/pumps out of the older stand up jetskis for future jet barry points.
  9. Bought a few m of marine carpet and glued it into the front hull and sides. Makes it look a bit tidier but also hoping it'll make the hull a bit quieter when on the water. Mounted in a new fire extinguisher, coz, you know, safety....
  10. Still plugging away but have been a bit slow... Roof has been stripped and I've fixed up a few holes and redone some of the rivets Its pretty tight in my single garage now... am working on the cab sides to mount fixed glass rather than the original sliders. Resoldered on the fuel gauge and cut some new gaskets. Need to fix it back into the chassis so I can drive it round into the shed and start mounting up some of these body panels.
  11. Interesting.... I'm rebuilding the doors with new skins for one that has gone down south.
  12. I hear ya, I never tend to trust pre-built stuff too. Is the core of it all at least good ? No cracks where they are notorious?
  13. Yep that sounds about right... pricey still in the states too... might be worth finding a runner here or import one?
