Light steering/bad setup?

Mon, 08/22/2016 - 08:12
Hey guys,

My brother in law just picked up a 1978 challenger. Its pretty clean and he got a decent deal on it. We took it to the lake Saturday to lake test it and i have a few questions.

The boat is a 1/4 stringer 18 foot boat, stock 460, dominator pump, A impeller, Place Diverter full droop, and a Hydraulic Place diverter (new style). Starts up and sounds great fresh plugs, wires, etc.

We took it out Saturday and since this is his first jet boat, I drove it first for a little while.

Couple of things i noticed.

Comes up on plane pretty quickly for not having a lot of power. The diverter works well. When on plane though, the boat constantly wants to go right. You literally have to constantly steer to the left. Not over steer but you cant just let go of the wheel and have it go straight. (i can in my boat) The steering is VERY light compared to my boat. I dont know if this could contribute to it or not.

Doesnt take much up nozzle for the thing to porpoise pretty hard, easily fixed by trimming down though.

Spins about 42-4300 rpm with the A impeller. IDK the mph, didnt GPS it. But he did say at 2500-3k it was cruising about 32mph. Pulls pretty good from a roll to wot, just porpoises with to much diverter.

any ideas on the steering? Does the RPM sound about right? I was considering pulling the droop and trying without it if you think that might help?

Like the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Family Foundation (a completely different entity). Why? They pay for your parties, travel, and other shit... Example you ask?

Shoe ride plate advise

Sun, 08/21/2016 - 20:56
I have an ultra 21xt that I need to replace the transom on, so I'll have the engine/jet out this winter. While that's all out I was considering getting the intake milled for a shoe and ride plate. This year I had the pump rebuilt by MPD and currently spin the fresh aluminum A- 5200 rpm with logs, center rise with full jacketed pipes to tips also going on this winter. I was at 64mph last summer with the place diverter droop/ride plate. This summer I had all new interior and the boat is heavier so barely hit 60mph and rode wet. I don't want to waste this opportunity to get the intake done, but also don't want to waste money if this heavy boat won't benefit. I have a regular droop that will go on in place of the droop/bolt on ride plate that's on now. And I will also mess around with nozzle inserts.

Want to buy. Casale bearing cap for input shaft 10*

Sun, 08/21/2016 - 20:52
I'm looking to purchase an upper bearing retaining cap for the input shaft for my 10* case split box. My bearing seized on the race boat and it took out the retaining cap. It wasn't pretty. Last lap in a very important points race. Take a look and see what you have laying around. It needs to have provision for the lip seal as well. But you already knew that. I will be out of the country for a little while but will try and keep up on the site.

Thanks in advance.
