    Trim question???

    Both my ski's trim down and up smoothly. The trim down is nozzle down but the trim up is level with the pump?

    What's the deal with this?

    Found it...the trim is 10 degree's down and up is level. I'll add a touch of up trim. That nozzle should come up 10 degree's at least from what I read.

    Odd they would leave the trim at level for full up.

    Seems that whoever put the new trim cable/motor box in did not get the adjustment end turned all the way in. It had quite a bit left. I still trimmed both cables about 1/4". It made the adjuster about a thread away from the bottomed out lock nut. Still have a touch of down trim and actually have some up trim.

    Talking to yourself, eh?

    From the factory, there is no Up. Many people modify this, which makes the 'Ski a LOT more fun to ride. On my 'Ski, I made a new bracket that mounts the cable end to the nozzle. It has the hole drilled 3/4" farther back, which makes my trim go from Neutral to UP. It's FUN now!

    I found a long long time ago that if I talk it out I usually figure it out shortly after...something about how my mind works. lol.

    When I was riding both I noticed full down trim was useless...I mean, plow the front in the water useless. That should have told me something wasn't right. They just gave up screwing the end on the cable when it wouldn't turn by hand. I held it with pliers and it continued to thread a good bit. I thought it was odd to see soo much thread left

    Whatever it is now, I have some down nozzle and some up nozzle. Kinda curious on how the top end picks up. I squeezzed her for a few seconds with negative trim and got 61.x mph without trying and double oil. Along with an unsealed rideplate and pump.
