    Question LV Jetboy...?

    Anyone ever run into him? He brought some good reading to Just Jets @ Hot Boat.
    I used his 1-in/2 dumps out plumbing set up for my engine and the pressure never goes above 11 lbs.

    Hammer what pist him off at HB. I remember reading he was done and that was the last post from him. Being a noobee on HB in 01 he always tried to answer my questions through PM's Sent pics of his way. Back then its was killer to get info like that.

    What is this 1 in 2 dumps you speak of?

    Single water line from pump to motor and double from motor overboard. Easier for the water to exit the motor and decreases block pressures. You could do the same thing by running a larger line out than in (-8 from pump to motor and -10 or -12 overboard).

    Jer had some good stuff and you can bet there are some people out there utilizing some of his tricks and they don't even know it. I used his ball valve to the spiders deal myself. Lots of guys used the JPC (jet pump calculator). Wish I had a copy of the second version. When figuring some things out with the Kachina it came in handy (horsepower and impeller cuts).

    There was a guy that was all about the charts n graphs.

    Anyway........I guess it just got a little too confrontational there towards the end. Lots of arguments going on. Haven't seen or heard from him since he dropped out.

    It was a way of keeping block water pressure down to very safe levels yet keep the block full of water(no steam pockets)...very simple to do and it works great and he thought of it!
    Instead of haveing one dump out the back have two...that's two separate dump lines of equal diameter and length.
    LV drew up a nice diagram, I may still have it somewhere. If I find it I'll scan it in and post.

    Me too...just a good way to equalize water pressure to the headers so they start fogging at the same time.
    I also shut them off when I run my engine on the hose so zero chance water gets to the headers and in engine at idle.

    Also works for racing. Not as convenient as having the shutoff at the driver's seat, and you have to climb back to turn em off, but works. If you want to make a lot more noise, and sound all bad ass'd (no water) but then go the same speed as with water, it can come in handy.

    We have Sleeper Cp for the charts and graphs now. I do remember talking to him though. He was an engineer I believe.

    I remember getting him a little riled up about the Tunnel boat long jump reccord attempt. And the golf ball dimples on the rideplate thread.

    My boat is set up with the 1 in 2 out dealio. I did it for the same pressure concerns. But I had never heard anyone mention it. (I am a newbee here)
    I have 1/2 inch in, two 10an out to my bassett tt rear water feed.

    I think the "is it horsepower or torque" threads sent him over the edge.
