FZ Transom issue
I did a search but didnt find anything informative on this transom issue jerry mentioned.
Can anyone elaborate on it before I start poking around?
He said about squaring it up. I am assuming that it is not perfectly mounted, maybe a bit cockeyed which would explain my drifting issue with it. My guess is that one side is hanging a bit low.

From what I understand, it means to align the plate to the pump liner making sure that there is not a lip in the direction of the water flow. Also they say to measure the intake grate and ride plate for side to side measurement making sure that they are square to one another as well as to the hull.
Hopes this helps. I may not have described it very well.

I thought he was talking about the lip on the top edge of the transom plate where it buts up to the top of the pump tunnel. You can see it and get to it, by removing the pump, just a matter of grinding and sanding it off.

Yes inside of the pump for the transom plate and pump liner is what I was talking about with the direction of water flow checks. The ride plate and intake grate is to help keep the craft tracking correctly and not to create water turbulance as the two parts work with each with other as the craft moves across the water.

Save five minutes by not reinstalling the rubber flaps too.
Easier to hear if it's runing that way.
