    jims plate install

    ALright I got a jims plate from a member here. I went to install and was amazed how much I am going to have to grind off. Does anyone have the info jims sends with his plates on where and how much to grind. I also read it says to start with 2 washers up front? How thick of washers? Thanks guys!

    I had to grind my pump on bottom rear till it was just almost into the bolts........if i can find a photo ill post it....you should have the clearance set so that a dollor bill will slide between pump and plate....in fact the more dollors you insert in your ski the faster it will usually go. Do you know how to set the plate angle ?

    Youl will have to grind the pump, my jim's plate fit like a glove, angled mine till it almost hits the bottom bolt on the steering nozzle. Good luck

    I have read a few posts on here about it. It will be my first time doing it though.

    I replaced the stock bolt with a button head allen bolt, I was not sure if the stock steering bolt was dragging in the water...every little bit adds up.

    Re: jims plate install

    Just get yourself a grinder and a flapper wheel and go to town. You have to grind off a good amount off of your pump and nozzle

    I took a 12" metal ruler and placed it firmly against the center of my ride plate with only a few inches on the plate and the rest hanging off towards the steering nozzle. In my way of thinking, if the ruler is not hitting the bolt head your good to go. I also have a button head allen bolt on mine.

    I got it all fitted. i can't believe how much I had to take off the pump. It fits perfect though so it was worth the time grinding.
