    Default any good jet boat shops in sac?

    I finally got everything put back together and I cant seem to get the motor tuned just right. It fires up but wont stay running without my foot in it. Seems to need some more valve, carb and timing adjustment. Im finally out of options(aka want this thing on the water already) with this being my first time doing all of this. Anyone know of any shops in Sacramento that could do a tune up for me? Im not looking to spend an arm and a leg but I know its not going to be free.

    Nate,
    Pulling it a couple of hours to Jim at Performance Jet in Sebastopol would be well worth it. Are you sure you don't have a vacuum leak somewhere?

    Thats a good idea. I may have to look into taking it down there. It could be a vacuum leak but I think that I just cant get the combination of valve adjustment and timing right. Ive never done this before so that could also be the problem. haha. I found a shop that said they could do it for around $150 but I wanted to see what else was out there.

    Thats where I was at this morning actually. He seems to be the only hotboat place in town. All of the other boat places back away from those projects. Someone mentioned pirate boatworks on florin perkins but I cant get ahold of anyone there.

    Sounds like you don't have initial timing I had the same problem with mine Depending on your cam I had to put 16deg at idle (1100rpm) to get it to stay running with a total timing of 36 @ 3000rpm It was a simple spring change on my distributor

    Had an issue with mine doing the same thing. had the floats stuck and pumping gas out the overflow. Would only run when butterfly's were open giving it enough air to burn the excess fuel, just a thought.
