    Default Is this a Jacuzzi YJ loader?

    This was laying in the floor of my Ambassador when I bought it. The Ambassador has a converted YJ in it.





    I didn't think YJ loaders existed until some searching revealed this


    And this

    You got it Matt thats commonly refered to as the "River racer" loader , used to be avialable everywhere , flip it and see how much of the center runners are welded to the mounting plate Tom

    It looks alot like the loader in my WJ.

    Is that really what a YJ pump looks like. It looks like a blue box with a nozzle.

    it is likely pretty similar to your WJ loader (wj flange has only two bolt holes) and thats a YJ , removed via "sawzall" with alot of "boat" still attached

    That makes a lot more sense. I couldn't imagine any reasons a pump would look like that.

    Looks to be welded as good as it could be. Is it safe to try it on the Rebel? Maybe it will be that little extra to get me from 59.4 to 60.1 MPH.

    Matt if you elect to use it maybe give thought to bead blasting it and paint it flat white to monitor for cracks , the intake bolt pattern apparently precluded much of an surface area to attach the length wize runners (looks like less than an inch) I have one of these (nos) and I'll check it for similarities Tom

    Thanks Tom. Already dropped it off to be blasted. He is going to add a couple of welds at suspect areas as well.
