    I would talk with cp again, explain your symptoms and vids are always helpful. Like a before and after way to document the progress. They should be able to set you with a long enough ride plate. Tabs would work. But way overkill and 3X the cost and headache to install. An adjustable ride plate will make all the difference in the world. How much of a droop did you go? 4"??? Dean

    AG6 replied to a thread Porpusing in Vintage Jet Boats only
    Hi Dave, Porpoising is a very simple thing to understand. It is caused when the hull of the boat is at the Apex, and trying to 'climb out of the hole' or over the crest of the wave of water its on, if you will. Another words, the boat is at a teetering point(like a see-saw) and the balanced is being upset. Not enough drag to hold down the nose, when you lift the bow(bring the nozzle up) so it starts to teeter up and down. One excellent way to correct this, is the use of a "Ride Plate" under the bowl of your pump. This in effect tricks the hull in to thinking its longer than it is, and creates enough surface drag (or parasitic drag) to actually compensate for this bouncing. Most of the Jet boat guys use these for this reason, and you'll notice that you may also pick up a few MPH and better handling as well. CP, PJB and many of the aftermarket boat part house carry these, but I'd recommend you take the boat with you and some current video of how its reacting. This will give these folks the info they are going to ask for, to help you select a ride plate. Almost all boats have this issue. I/O's (like my Biesemeyer) has it too, I just use trim tabs to correct it. Good luck, Hope this all helped. Dean.

    That's how I feel and I have to jump into cold water before I walk on the beach sometimes just because.

    wardjr replied to a thread WTB No dipstick? in Boat Parts for Sale
    On 2 separate occasions with 2 very different boats. I have had the tube break off clean at the casting. Vibration and poor mounting of the tube causes them to crack. I then used a bolt with some Teflon tape to act as a sort of plug. I kept the dipstick along with the broken tube. When I needed to check the oil I'd pull the bolt/plug and set in the dip stick. Once done the bolt would go back in. This is an easy solution to a common problem. But you need to be sure the bottom section of the tube still has enough flare to prevent falling into the pan. If the bottom section is not present, assume it fell into the pan and remove the pan to find it.

    You'll have to buy one. Just figure out which side it's on. https://www.summitracing.com/search/part-type/engine-oil-dipsticks/make/chevrolet/model/v3500/engine-size/7-4l-454/oil-dipstick-location/passenger-side :zdrool:

    Thanks, I enjoy damn near anything fast. bikes, cars, boats. Being a mechanic, i've known nothing but, this is my life. Used to build street cars in the early 70s in Southern California, Van Nuys Blvd. on Wednesday nights. Friday and Saturday nights raced the beach from Manhattan down to Redondo Beach.we used to ride our bikes up past Pepperdine University to the rock store. raced Mulholland, Topanga Canyon. long before all the things you see on the Internet now, we were doing back in the 70s. Didn't have as nice of bikes as they do now days, but it sure as hell didn't stop us from having fun. It would appear were kindred spirits and the rest of your group. Thanks again for extending the invitation to a like-minded idiot.
