    Default Setback info?

    Anyone got pics or info of their pump setback? Also maybe a mechurment from the transom to the reverse gate of the diverter, (minus a snoot). Im entertaining the idea but my boat needs to fit in my garage. I just closed my intake and so its got me thinkin. Also any info on how it effected performance and where you got the plate to close off the pump through the transom.

    I set mine back last year. I have a dominator pump, and set it back so that the hand hole covers front bolt was one inch behind the transom. I think you want to set it back as far as you can without letting the intake opening get past the transom. If the intake opening is back too far, I think it can suck some air if you are turning hard.

    For the plate to block off the hole in the transom. Once the intake is set in place and mounted. Mount the suction housing and make some templates out of cardboard or posterboard. Then cut the template out of aluminum. I tig welded my plates right to the suction housing, not sure if that is what everybody else does or not.

    I custom made mine...once the pump is set back I doubt there's any over the counter transom cover that fits. At least when the hand hole cover isn't all the way out the back.

    this one looks clean

    copy from legend
    J120-G Pump with Set-Back Intake and Univesal Transom Flange and Ride Plate

    Only Legend has:



    • Flange and Suction Piece designed to easily accommodate Transom Angles from 4 to 16 degrees...
    • Transom Gasket for easy disassembly... Flange drilled and tapped for Diverter Fittings...
    • Shift Cable and Cooling Water Fittings thru Flange...

    I wonder if Berk makes one?
    Anyone have that measurement from trans to tip? That is the deciding factor?

    Here is one I did a couple years ago, it was an I/B direct drive, converted to jet boat. The hull was quite thin near the transom, for jet boat duty, so it was beefed up. The boat had 2X8 stringers full length already, just finished wrapping them.

    Forgot one thing I did that was based off a Legend intake, we welded a filler in the intake/suction flanges. This allowed a one piece T/A plate to be used. Here you can see how it fills in even with the transom, we also dog eared the intake at the back, to remove any extra protusion of the intake flange.
