This is my second season with a jet boat, (was free) mostly anyway. I have no where near the experience or the boat of a lot of members here but I'm enjoying the boat a ton. It's a 1974 Cobra Jet with an olds 455 and a berkeley pump.
I have two questions.
1. Since putting on a place diverter I have almost no reverse. I've tried with the diverter up or down, no luck. The waste gate opens and closes fine, but I don't know why ... no love on reverse, almost hit some rocks today. It seems like it just sprays water in the boat and I go forward still. Any suggestions? It had a lot more reverse with the stock nozzzle.
2. Do you guys know anybody in the Sacramento area that could give my 455 a tune up?
Thanks for any help.
