    Johnny there was an enormous amount of though and planning here and truthfully unlike our Panther Energizer the odds we'll ever do another Eliminator is unlikley The Gentleman is Pretty stoked , hope it works the way we planned it, the top speed before was 5mph , He just emailed us after seeing the pics last nite and offered a week in a time share Condo on South Padre island along with a bottle of cupboard of Patron and use of a 26' boat fishing boat as a bonus , Man do we need a vacation

    PS of all the Places..Today were building a "one off" Berk deal for some very nice boat builder Folks overseas for a 23' they want to try some jets vs stern drives ps if you don't think those folks boat , this is the show they suggested we should visit Yatchs are a little outa my league

    Thanks RP its been fun to say the least ,definatley a "one off" deal since I don't belive more than a few of these jets were ever made (or still in existance) here from today were down to it , note that the front bearing carrier originally used Three Single Row bearings, two in the housing and one in the cap spacer. We refitted with two Late Casale type 3207's (bearings similar to a Berk/Dom thrust 3307,) Josh modified a Berk "A" pump shaft, built a billet front bearing cap and pinned the wear ring today (pop off Hmmmmm ...

    Good question , we first thought we could simply build a "shuffle plate" to simply adapt a Berk jet to hisiontake but the deck (mounting flange) for the "Eliminator Jet" is higher and thus the centerline for the front Bearing carrier boss in the Eliminator is about 1.5 in lower so the drive line alignment using a Berk suction would have been impossible. This suction is aluminum alloy and is very similar to Berk but the overall weight difference between the two is Huge the old jet was a Beast
