    Engine and pump are coming out as soon as I can get to it. Have to make 2 parts and put all back together and see what happens next.( maybe 80 mph ) So yes chevy jet the tx19 is under construction

    I got a call today for a order of 1 dozen new parts that I am making for a jet boat now, so I have to make them first. Been working on it for a little while now.

    Anybody has their pump apart this winter I have a few 3 seal pump shaft seals left so you can replace the rope seal. pm me for price.

    Been color sanding the hull, it's been the toughest part of the project so far Did some machine work (oiling mods) on the block last weekend, dropped off some parts at the machine shop, went to the hospital on Monday to have metal removed from my eye been sanding and buffing every day now for a few hours bought billet motor plates today. There is not enough time in the day, for a day time job, and a full time hobby Maybe some day I will have it done, sooner the better the wife's bustin' my balls

    How about still working on projects from last winter....like my v-drive. Gotta pick up the heads Thursday (majority of the exhaust valve guides were leaking), then put it back together, run it long enough to fill the block with anti-freeze, then put it away for the winter.

    Still need to build a fuel rail, sitting in the driveway full of fuel, may get the snomobile suit out and run it 1 last time, drained averything but didn't antifreeze it yet............ decisions........ decisions............ Years ago HES and I used to run em until Dec.!!!!!............... Also need to build some seat brackets, seats are not mounted very well, didn't want to drill any new holes in the stringers so just threw em' in there half AZZed........ another job for Shotgun............. We need to hook up dude!!!!!Every time I touch a piece of wood I ruin it!!......... Also putting 2' spacers and 50 cc accelerator pumps on my carbs, they are only 750's and I get a lean pop when I hammer it let off and go to a power turn, also if I idle for a long time in no wakes and nail it, it lean pops............. could go to bigger carbs, but the thing gets incredible fuel milage with the vacuum secondaries and the plugs are nice and tan. Needs to go approx 30 miles without a fuel stop to work for me where I usually run!!!!! The fun never stops!!!!! Oh yeah, still haven't fixed the trailer where I smashed into that guy's truck in Oscoda........ Talk about a total DUM AZZ, I'm still kicking myself!!!!!

    No plans for the hydro other than trying some new hardware. Hope to start on the Daytona soon. Probably not until after the holidays when work slows down.

Aaaah yes I can see a few good looking shiny tall deck motors on the beach, with barely enough fuel to get back to the launch saying, "Holy crap how fast you think that Daytona was going man? That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"

    No Don, haven't gotten to the Dimarco yet, probably won't be this year with the economy the way it is. Thought maybe I'd get it in the basement, but I didn't get the door cut in yet. I think we're at the end of the winterizing at work, very few phone calls today, maybe I can get something done. I decided to keep the Tahiti, and put the twistie headers on it. That'll be my big project for winter.

    The new blown-injected alcohol bullet should be together by the end of the year, and then it will be dropped in my Mako for plumbing. It's going to be a long winter.
