    Default Trying to get high maintenance setup

    I bought an angle finder today so I can see where I'm at on the setup. Ride plate is 1.5 degrees up from the keel and the nozzle is 5. From what iv read 3 &4 are a good starting point and 4 &7 is the magic numbers on most wingers so Iv been way off.

    It also depends on the type of droop you are running. Stright,short,full they all are setup differently with the wedge. I have been told you want no more than 10* up and set the plate at or around 3* up to start! I have heard of 5* but, I haven't heard of 7*! Grady has been playing with his and he may can tell you more.

    I meant 4 on the plate and 7 on the nozzle when I said 4&7.

    4* on the plate is a good starting point

    Default back to 4

    I'm with TN 4 degrees to start. I run a half droop so I run my deverter a couple notches higher than the guys with full droops. Mine flies high at 4 didn't gps it but flies to high at 5. 4 degrees on plate, full droop 2 or 3 degrees of wedge 2 degree tapered shoe open loader and a 3.125 bushing is a good starting point

    Right now it has a 4deg wedge, full droop, and fixed race nozzle with a 3.125 insert. But the ride plate is only 1.5deg up from keel. Can't believe iv never checked it lol.
    I have a diverter now but I need to get it machined for an insert. Think I'm going to go with a 3.000 to start with.

    Default could be better

    My nose is to high and roost is to high also. I need to push the nose down direct the jet more into the water and lift the boat straight up. My motor is all the way back, I keep the tanks full and they are all the way back too. All working against my 240# but up front

    I finally measured my impeller. It's a AA that has been cut some. It's now
    9 3/32 x 7 3/16. I thought it was an AB guess I'm making more hp than I thought!

    Its same size as AA on big side and a little smaller than an A on the small side??
    It was turning 5800 last time out with a few issues. It should turn 6k next time it hits the water. I made a few small changes.
