    Does the original trim motor operate the tabs or is there a separate motor? This thing has all the bells and whistles, nice find! How many sets of hotseat pipes do you own now?

    The steering looks like mine, those 46 novi side drafts? are my trim tabs gonna be that big? those look huge. maybe thier diff for the trim handle deal. mine are stationary.

    is that another holly or msd ignition? damm. gas valves too. damm, that thing has it all. nice ski.

    these things are like antiques. just like a p-51 airplane was back in the day. soon as you see it, your eyes are stuck to it. it draws you in.... have to have it... I pity the next poor basturd that sees one (A Pro 785 ) and ends up spending 1000's and running hundreds of gallons of gas thru it.lol

    It's an Adicction! Soon as you start it up, your done...

    what kind of ride plate is that? That exit nozzle is odd looking too. please do tell more.

    Msd ign. the trim tabs are actually small and the pump is setup with the 2 inch spacer 48 blackjacks
    Wait till my other new ski comes in a few weeks i've always wanted one of these and it has triples and MSD too and no it's not a 785

    That's awesome dude, this looks like a beast what are your plans for it? I noticed there is a welded extension on the exit nozzle. What is that mod good for??

    he's running a 2 inch spacer on the pump therefore the pump is shorter and it sorta of steered diferent so they put a 1 3/4 extension on the nozzle to help it steer better it also has a 88mm nozzle on it
    i'm not sure what i'm going to do with it i might ride it awhile and then try and sell it

    88 nozzle wow that is huge. My guess is she accelerates like a mofo but tops out around 55.
