    Default Pump brace ?'s

    Is a jet pump brace used to keep something from flexing or breaking, or both? What specific part is it stopping from flexing and/or breaking? I've seen two very different forms of a pump brace and they appear to be doing two very different things. If you have pics of a pump brace post them up please. Thanks!

    Here is the best shot I have on hand(not very good) I was still fighting my dl cover here. I plan on adding the type that hooks on the outside of the transom to the pump also. I started a thread a while back called something like "let's see your pump braces" There were lots of nice ones posted on that thread.

    we run a intake support and a pump support ... to prevent flex and twist .. not to mention for smacking sandbars ..

    Thanks, especially since I have an excellant knack for running into sh!t.

    I should have done a search first but I didn't, thanks for the link.

    I was trying to decide which type to run (off of the bearing cap or down near the intake) but I couldn't decide because I don't even know why they are there. It never occured to me to run both. Very cool.

    Here's a pic of one that I took a few months ago, just because.

    I think alot of the guys that are running a good amount of power and lighter boats are installing two pump braces.
    I installed an upper as well as a lower, allthough I am not one of the higher powered faster guys, i figured...why not have the support of the two vs. just one.
    How far have you gotten with your GW?

    Right on Todd.

    (GW) I'm waiting for parts, waiting for powdercoating, waiting for a pump rebuild/impellor cut/impellor repair, just waiting

    I am putting one on the front of my intake to stop flex from the pump setback. Just think of how the boat levers on the ride plate it will put a lot of stress downward on the intake.

    I always wondered why everyone said that was the best place to put one??? I still doubt I have room under my pan though? Here is a little better shot of my mess.lol
