Just put in pump strainer. Should I readjust the JW valve?
I had been running the JW without the white pump strainer. I heard that thats bad, due to debris that can be sucked in, so I put it on. Will it change the pressure that the water is coming in at? Would I need to readjust the JW valve?

I would double check it just to be sure.
Also, maybe pull the JW valve apart and check for debris.

Oh boy... I was hoping that that wouldnt be the answer. I hate messing witht the JW. I forgot what I have it set at now, but would 3k on the stock tach be fine?
Thanks for the quick response WFO, you da man

I would set it very low if you are using the stock tach. 3K will be ok but you really want it closer to 3500, but you need a good tach to get it that close. You can get the base model Tiny Tach for $35.00. A good tach is a must have for fine tuning things.

I will look into a Tiny Tach, but any suggestions for how low with the stock tach? Also any more input if the strainer will affect the pressure?

Yes 3000-3500, somewhere in that range.
A little tip... unscrew the valve and take the spring with your hands and stretch it. Not too much, but make it a little longer than stock. Usually that's all you need.

With the strainer that you added, I think it will affect volume, therefore it will probably affect pressure, but not real sure. It would be best to check it just to be sure.

Ok, Ill make sure,and readjust if needed.
There wont be a problem with the strainer not letting in enough water right? From what I understand everyone else is using it?

I just put my jetworks on the other day and was trying to set it. I have mine screwed almost as tight as it can go in. Is that right? Should I take it appart and strech the spring as Rich suggested? or is that over kill for mysetup? I have it coming on right at 3K. I was afraid to tighten it any more...

Stretch the spring. I have seen Rich do this before. Mine is screwed all the way together and opens at 3300 rpm. I really need to do the same thing on mine.
