    OK, I can't seem to figure this out - trim nozzle on pump?

    I have two pumps, one from a 750 and one from one of my SLT780s.

    The trim nozzle doesn't seem to fit where I thought it would. The spacing is right, but the ears aren't lined up when it is on as far as it will go.

    What am I missing?

    the steering nozzle for trim is different to allow the movable part to attach to it.

    Right.

    It looks like you mounted a "trim" exit nozzle on top of a "non trim" exit nozzle

    Take a llok at this.

    I have a complete trim nozzle assembly if you need one.

    Right now I am trying to decide if adding trim to my SLT780's would be worth it.

    I was going to try mounting the trim cone and doing some manual testing to see what, if any, gains I could get.

    I am guessing the trim steering nozzle is simply globed to match the trim cone inner profile.
    If so I may mod one of my existing cones to match, assuming there are no other gotchas.

    I have trim on both of my SLT hulls. I first put it on a 99 SLTH which is the same ski, except with the 700 twin instead of a 780. I also did it to my X45. Its does yield some top speed gains, as well as better rougher water handling, with the ability to trim it down. Do the trim and an OP plate and I think you will really like the results. I got 53.0 on GPS with my SLTH after those changes and a different impeller. The SLT 780 was slightly faster in stock form than my 700 as far as I know. I have to leave to go work right now, but if you want, I will take a pic of the whole setup, with trim AND reverse.

    Pic would be appreciated!

    A pic of the steering nozzle by itself would be most helpful!

    There are two versions of the steering nozzle. One for trim, and one without. You must also have the correct steering nozzle. Not a great pic... The reverse bucket and the trim nozzle share the same mounting point, but the steering nozzle is cut back quite a bit to allow for the trim nozzle to fit. Reverse your thought process and install the reverse bucket on the SL pump nozzle and you will be all set.
