    Default Jet Drive instructional books

    Hello Greg

    My name is Karl Kostman and I am aggressively searching for a boat to buy but until that time comes do you have some suggestions on good books, magazines, websites etc. that I can buy or go look at that will explain to me as much as possible about this subject? My main questions are how do I pick the correct Impeller for the boat? what Cam grinds are workable for a Jet boat engine, does the camshaft and induction have to be matched to the impeller setup, so I am making full HP or Torque numbers when the impeller is moving the most water? Do I treat my impeller setup similar to how I setup the torque converter setup in a vehicle, you know what RPM does my torque converter lockup as per when does my impeller become the most efficient?
    I have a whole lot of question I need to educate myself on and any suggestions as to learning material would sure be appreciated Greg!

    Thanks You
    Karl Kostman

    see if you can find a copy of the SELOC Jet Drive Manual. hard to find, but has everything in it that you'd ever want to know. good luck.

    For what it's worth, this book and the Berkeley factory publications got me through from zero knowledge to installation. Also a hard to find book.

    It seems there are a few for sale actually. Highly recommended.
