    Default HTP "Holeshot" inducer

    I was checking out Duayne's site and saw this new inducer.

    It says you dont have to remove the shaft to install it. Then, how does it work or install? Anyone know?

    I tried to call but looks like they are closed

    I believe that you send him your impeller and he turns a 1/4" or so off the front, the inducer then uses that amount of the end of the keyway

    NO!!!!!! That is dumb I would not do that now every time you need to mess with your pump you have one off stuff and not in a good way I would stick to the good old way it's bin done for ever turn the shaft down to 1.371" X 3.750" And don't touch the impelor

    not sure what the difference would be ? a one off impeller or a one off shaft? seems to me that either way your changing a part. I would think that if you turn impeller and you decide to take the inducer back out you would just make a spacer for the impeller, an if you go the other way (cut the shaft ) you could just make a spacer for the shaft. the only difference that I can se is you don't have to remove the shaft with the new inducer. which means you don't have to remove the suction housing. = a lot less labor

    why in the world do I want to buy a new shaft when I already have a good shaft that's sitting right inside the pump that's bolted right down into the boat. Im not saying these are the hot ticket. but what I am saying is IF its a good part that works then why pull the whole pump out to completely disassemble it to cut the shaft (or as you say buy a new shaft) that will now not work unless you run an inducer on it or a spacer in its place if I decide down the road I dont want to run an inducer. when you can save a lot of work by leaving the pump in place and remove the bowl cut the impeller and be done with it. IF and I say IF it does the job as good as the best inducer out there now then why not go with it ? I haven't heard or seen any comments on how they perform yet.

    Fyi even a inducer cut shaft can be used like any normal shaft without the inducer or any kinda spacer in its place its a wise investment if youve gta replace the shaft to go ahead and order it for a future inducer install.

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    Also if you cut the impelor .600 that means that the inducer is only held on by at MOST .600 of key way now at 1000 plus hp do you think just a little over 1/2 " is enough to hold that thing in place ?

    Been on the road a couple of days and just now saw this thread. There are a couple of ways to install the "Hole Shot" inducer. The easy way is to just machine the hub of the impeller back .600". The other way is to bore the impeller center back .600" at a 1.750" bore size. Either way works well, but the boring way makes just a little smoother water entry into the impeller.

    I knew the "ruin you impeller" comment would show up, so I produced a .600" spacer cone that can be put in front of the impeller and it can be used again as normal in any pump you want. That way the impeller in NOT ruined for further use.

    I'll see if I can find a couple of pictures of it installed both ways. I never expected the response that I have had on this new product and have completely sold out of them. For those of you have ordered, I should have the new production run in about three weeks.

    If a customer wants, they can send their impeller in and we will machine it for free when buying a new "Hole Shot" inducer.

    I will be happy to answer any questions you may have. I will be back to the shop Tuesday the 3rd.

    This one installed by just taking off the .600" from the impeller hub.

    These inducers have all been H.I.P. treated!

    That is why I'm relying on Duane's expertise to know the product that he is selling. I'm sure he has engendered it to hold up to a specific amount of power and would think he would stand behind it for that. If he says its good for 1k HP then ok ! I haven't seen or talked to him about any of that and of course wouldn't even consider using one if it wouldn't handle the power that I'm running. I'm not saying these are the best way to go but sure seems like its a time and money saver over the other inducers. Just have to wait and see what the specs are on it. Interesting that he has already sold out of them!
