    Default New to Jet Boating 79 Nordic

    I have a 79 Nordic jet boat. It has a Dominator pump done by Cp performance with shoe and ride plate. I need a specialist shop to look at it to get this combo to work its best. Any suggestions. I live in pa. Will travel to neighboring states.

    I'm about 24 miles south of you and boat/Jet on the Delaware River...I use to tow all the way up I-95 to Neshaminy Park to use their ramp and or the ramp at Linden Av.

    Anyhow, don't expect to find any Jet specialty shops in our area, there are none.
    Achieving parts, a rebuild kit etc and a LOT of good advice can be had here.

    I would suggest (and as I did back in 1996) was to purchase this book "Selocs-Marine-Jet-Drive-1961-1996" because, UNLESS you expect to RACE this boat and blueprint the pump to it's fullest potential $$$, with this book in hand and a little know how, YOU will be more than able to take apart, rebuild and have a very nice tight reliable jet pump > > > TO HAVE FUN WITH!

    xanthis302 welcome to a great site

    it sounds like your looking for advice on set up and not rebuild at this point

    I would read and ask questions in just jets for there's a ton of great stuff there.
    and the rest is the fun of jet boats test,test,test,test,test and test some more tell your happy

    and good luck and have fun

    just remember to wear a vest at all times
