    Jet Works Valves

    I have heard that you should change the balls in these to steel. Does any one have a size or part # and where I can buy these?

    You aren't kidding!

    I went out and checked mine and literally had to force it out with a punch. It's all oval shaped and was in there pretty good.

    That definitly explains why my hoses appeared to be needing replaced. I planned on checking the valve, but didnt make it a immediate priority (figured the hoses would just cook off)

    And maybe added to my loss of rpm's???? anywhere from 300-400 rpm's
    What you all think?

    Wonder if they are going to do something about aluminum wear problems now? I know the new ball will tear the piss outta the aluminum valve!

    Edit: Maybe just plan on the valve bein a yearly replacement, and keep a spare on hand.

    Part of my winterization is to take the ball out and just put it in the big side of the spring for the off season. Then in the spring, I put it in right. I also put a very thin coat of grease on it to keep it from sticking during the season...never a problem in 8 yrs with 3 watercraft.

    Just be VERY carefull you don't forget the ball during the on season or forget to tell a new owner that you perform this as part of your Winter procedure.
