    Default Too many options, not enough knowledge..

    Hi all! I've just bought a 1977 Caribbean Pacemaker 2100 with a mild 460 in it. It has had an energizer kit put into the old golden eagle at some point. I got the boat cheap because the bowl is missing, impeller is destroyed, and the wear ring is, well, worn. I also own a very good Jerk 12jc with an A impeller. Can I use the bowl and impeller on that energized Jacuzzi?

    The Impeller could likley be used but would probably need a different wear ring ,The 12jc bowl would require fairly extensive work Welding and machining as the bowl bolt size and positioning as well as othe differences would preclude any simple install/swap

    Okay. Thanks. Bolt spacing is same, but they are only 3/8 bolts on that golden eagle. Not sure if I'll put the energizer together or just swap to berk. Be a good opportunity to put a set back berk and place diverter on the big bugger.
