    Shaving the pump down for plate...

    Ok, this might need to be put in the "How To" section after the thread is added on.

    Here is what I would like to know,

    Who has the instruction on shaving down the pump and nozzle to fit one of the famous IslandRacing or Jim/"FF" Ride Plates? What did you use? Pictures? Everything you know! Haven't seen anything about this posted on the forums and I know everyone has a plate.

    You can use a grinder, a belt sander, or take the pump housing and reduction nozzle to the machine shop and have them machine the portion right where they bolt together. Its kind of hard to describe this without pictures. The bad part of taking it to the machine shop is you dont know how much to tell them to take off. Jim might be able to answer this question.

    I used a die grinder with a bit made for aluminum. You can knock off the material needed in a matter of seconds.

    Hello Chris if you are not sure on how to do it you can send the pump and nozzle to me. I provide that service for free when you send a plate to be done or when i sell a plate already done.

    K, I will remember that. After I get it back I will check it out to see if I think I am capable. I have a boat load of tools but I am a little bit nervous around the ski compared to my cars.

    its pretty easy, I can take a picture of mine tonight for you. The pump is pretty thick in the area you need to grind so it takes awhile but you would have a hard time going to far. if you look at the two lower bolt that hold the reduction nozzle on, you want to grind to the bottom of these and almost straight across.
