Here is what I did on the back to protect the nozzle and reverse, I made the trim tabs to stop the high speed pourposing , still pourposes but its not as bad, will have to figure that one out still

Are you using an OEM ride plate, or did you fabricate one?

Reason I ask is because I'm using a ride plate fabbed from 1/4" aluminum plate, and to combat porpoising, I bent a very slight downward angle on the last 2 inches of the plate.

With an OEM ride plate, you could still weld a tab on the back end, at a downward angle, and it would have the same effect.

I trashed the ride plate there was no way it would work I welded .0125 aluminum behind pumpthen welded the cover to that. I have thought about welding another piece of aluminum on the front leading edge and fabricate two adjusters in the back on each side of the nozzle to make an adjustable ride plate

I'd bend them more until you find the sweet spot. Just be aware that they are going to highly stressed and will break off unless you support the aft end.

i took out the boat recently messed with the trim tabs the boat didnt perform any better im thinking about redesinging the back end some kind of adjustable rideplate pod extensions right now they extend like 9 inches from the back and are unsupported im thinking at least 12 inches. i dont know but i think extending the back of the boat would make it ride better

You should be able to duct tape some plywood on the top of your existing tabs to see if the longer version is better. My hull with the pods planes smoother and flatter.

Cool, that's similar to the tabs I mounted under my pods. Mine worked best when the rear was raised up flush with the pods.

Well , a month ago my engine gave out the rear cylinder gave out the piston had a burnt hole in it , my engine is running lean. I rebuilt the engine I have the largest jet you can put in carb which is in a mikuni 46 mm . The carb can supply fuel to up to a 800 cc engine with no problems, ive rebuilt the carb . Anyways Ive taken the boat out and it runs great but the engine is still running lean ive backed out the high needle another 2 turns and the low one more turn which is like , high 4 turns out and low 3 turns out how far can I back out these screws. Im thinking that changing to a dual carb setup would be an option, I dont know , help any ideas.

Sorry to hear of the burnt piston.

Is the fuel pump keeping up? Maybe a clogged filter? Is the pop-off pressure OK?
