First off this is my first jet boat. Not really sure what I have here but for what I paid I figure I came out ok. It is a 1989 Tahiti that was manufactured by Hardin Marine. It does have full stringers in it. I'm told this is not the original engine. It now has a Chevy 350 full roller with a 500 lift cam. It does have a Berkeley 12JE pump on it with a place diverter, not sure if that is a plus or not. I'm told it has the stock impeller in it but with the deal I also got another stocker, a "B", and a "C" impeller. Few questions off the top of my head as for now,
1. What impeller do you figure is in the pump now? He said it has the "stock impeller" in it. Chevy 350 Roller Rockers and 500 lift cam it will turn 5000 rpm.
2. Pump maitenance? I see a grease zerk, I pumped quite a bit into it but didn't see anything ooze out anywhere. Keep pumping more in?
3. Any words of caution with this manufacturer or with the set up? I know it doesn't have a rev limiter. Not too worried, I don't plan on jumping it or hauling the mail in rough water.
