    Default Reverse rotation jet?

    I just got a call from someone saying they had a reverse rotation BB Ford in a jet boat. Has anyone ever heard of this?

    Maybe he converted it back to standard rotation.

    Or he installed the balancer toward the pump.

    lol prob pulled the dizzy cap and cranked it, wondered why it was turning backwards

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    I dunno...he says the balancer turns counter closkwise when he cranks it over. He seemed to be pretty sure of what he was sayin, but it's the first I've ever heard of a reverse rotation jet pump. The impeller would have to be made opposite, and the vanes in the bowl reversed. He says it has a top mount starter...my guess is he'll fnid out it's not a reverse rotation starter.

    Have seen a guy get a starter rebuilt and rebuilder didn't know it was a reverse rotation! Motor would start cranking backassards no startee!

    Never seen a counter rotating BBF but there may be one? Have seen this other scenario Wide track described several times as well though , prevelant with Fords equipt with Prestolite staters , after starter replacement the motor cranks wont start and backfires thru the carb usually happens when the customer takes the starter to XYZ auto parts or.. they give them something that "looks like" what he had , As I recall The only reverse rotation Jet drive Impeller (and bowl) (have pics somewhere) we have have seen was one specially engineered and machined by a friend for a Gas Turbine powered jet boat a few years back Tom

    If there was a reverse rotation jet readily available they could be cool like the GN's and run off the crank snout
