    Default New to Jet Boats

    Just got my fist Jet Boat and love it! A lot of fun to drive, but I want to know how to wrench on it as well. Its got a FORD 460 with Rewarder O/T headers. A few questions I had, was when using the gate value to set water temp, should this be done at idle or at 3000-3500 rpm's cruising speed?

    Been reading about pressure release valves, good, worth installing? I currently only have two dump ports in the transom. One for the bilge and the other for the water out... both trough the holes in the transom caps.

    I would install a pressure relief valve and then adjust the gate valve.You will need to drill a third hole in the hull for the pressure relief valve dump line.
