    I would look at a few things to confirm your thoughts on a 12je install. First do es the transom have a 14 boltflange that would have held the pump in. Second has the bottom had an insert installed to direct water into the E pump. My guess the boat had a setback pump install with some sort of conventional intake installed in it. I have never seen a Placecraft with an E pump because it's not a boat that was designed for an E pump install. Post pictures or send me a private e mail with some pictures and I'm sure we can figure it out.

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

    Somebody put a 12yj intake in a Placecraft. Have"nt seen that done before but depending on what you want to do with the boat I would be changing that out and putting one of the mixed flow pumps in it.Berkeley, Dominator, Legend, American Turbine, Aggressor but not the 12yj Jacuzzi.

    The more I look at the pictures I question what you really have.Do you have the pump that bolts to that intake.It looks like whatever intake you have it has been modified or it is something I haven't seen before.

    looks like a standard berk flange that has been modified heavily (inside the hull and outside the hull) for what reason who knows. Take it out and scrap it. Get a standard berk 4 degree intake or an MPD low profile intake. Both are good intakes, they will bolt up to just about every suction housing on the market. Stand 4 degree berks relatively easy to find used, just depends what you want to do with the boat. At this point it won't take much to switch intakes and in the long run you'll be much happier.

    Widowmaker you were right on, I don't know how you got Berkeley out of those back pictures but it certianlly is a Berkeley. I still would like to see the suction piece.

    Saw another one like it that had been cut like this for what reason i still don't know. In one of the pictures before you could barely make out the front of the flange.


    That is a good intake, now how you are going to be able to bolt a std suction housing to it securely, I don't know, I would still try to hunt down a replacement.

    Greg do you have one that you could sell him?

    If not I bet he can hunt one down for you.
