    Who Rebuilds Berkeley ?

    I picked up this 12JBA to have rebuilt for future use on my 1976 Sleek Craft Streaker. It currently has 12JC. 460 Ford, approximately 400 HP guesstimate by builder. Would like to have droop snoot and place diverter and new impeller and wear ring. I am mechanically inclined but never have rebuilt one. I am new to jet boat world but am hooked for life. Please advise. You guys have been AwesoClick image for larger version.

    Its not all that tuff......If you google berkley owners manual it pretty much step by steps it.
    I would probably send my impeller off to Tom at JBP or Duane at hi teck.
    They can get ya the correct undersized wear ring and turn your impy shoulder down if need be.
    You will probably have to pay to have the old bearing pressed off.
    I have been able to install my last to bearings by putting the shaft in the freezer over night....then the bearing in the oven as low as it will go for 2 or 3 hours.
    I call that the mcgyver press =)

    Appreciate the info. Do you have contact info for JBP or high tech when I get to that point. Thanks

    If you pay close attention to detail, you can do it yourself. Just make sure that you gap the impeller and wear ring correctly. Other than that, it's straight forward. That being said, I had Tommy at JBP do the one in my Eliminator just because I didn't trust myself.
