    Default Eliminator Jet Drive

    Just when you think you've seen them all... This is an "Eliminator" Jet Drive made in limited quantities and used in a handfull of river boats in the 60's /70's, Jet was apparently made in Lewiston Wahington and I was told today it was affectionatley called the "Spokane sewer pipe" sooooooooooo, This Poor Old Gent (customer) buys this boat in Idaho and hauls it back to Texas , cleans it up, freshens the Olds Engine and takes it to water a few weeks back Alas it wont get on plane now its here ought to be a challenge ! This Baby was ahead of its day Three impellers and waaaaaay long "straight" snoot

    Quote from Wacanda :The red and white boat featured above was built for and owned by my father from 1974 to 1994. It was built in 1974 and was powered by a 350 cid Oldsmobile V-8 coupled to an Eliminator Jet Drive (built in Lewiston Idaho.) It had a custom made..... http://wacandaboats.webs.com/1960sandlatermodels.htm

    You said it has 3 impellers?

    Is it a three stage pump?

    Does each stage have wear rings?

    I'm really curious.

    Not unlike Panther it appears to have been dependant on a "sacrificial" Blade and casting set up (no replaceable wear ring)
