    Question Strange markings on my pump!

    On the registration plate for my pump I have "TP-103" stamped on it. Anyone know what this means, it looks like it was added later. So, my best guess would be that it is the mark of the pump shop that did the work to my pump, but I don't know what shop did the work. Does anyone recognize these markings? I know a lot of you guys are performance pump shops, so I will eventually figure it out. Thank you.

    Here is a picture of the plate. Thanks.

    he passed away not very long ago. if you've got 1 of his pumps, you've got a nice piece of jetboat memorabilia(sp?)

    The pump looks very nicely done. So if it is one of his, then he did very good work.

    Tommy didn't keep individual pump records or do serial numbers like that, I highly highly doubt that it has anything to do with Tom Papp.

    Well, yea, that's how you get a 100mph boat.

    yeah, and at that point the markings on the pump become useless.
