    1977 Galaxie pump swap...

    Most of you followed the thread of my pump swap from the Panther to the Berkeley...
    I've got to tell you guys that this boat performs completely different now with this pump.
    It used to pull hard to the right when you let off the gas and now it tracks perfect!!!


    Bill Morgan knows his stuff when it comes to setup... I can only imagine if my budget were a little better what he could have done with this boat...
    Thanks so much Bill for fixing me up and I highly recommend his services!!!

    I started the process by removing the Panther

    This is where Bill takes over on the pump...

    He also did some engine work as well to wake this ole 460 up...

    See what happens to after driving a regular production Vintage JetBoat for a while. Somehow the 2 little Gremlins will find you! Their names by the way, are: "I Need More Horsepower & I need a Much Bigger Rooster Tail"
