    Wedge Install~~bucket Mod

    I just installed a RIVA 2' Pump Wedge and was looking at the Jet Pump Nozzle water exit path. It appears that it will hit the Reverse Bucket lower edge., even when the bucket is fully raised.

    Do most people cut out that small halve moon shape area on the lower part of the Reverse Bucket for clearence or am I mis-informed about the the Exit Nozzle water path ?

    yes do a search under "reverse bucket mod" lots of people cut it.
    theres also the ear holes on teh bucket that can be enlarged to enhance reverse function.
    tons of pictures too...

    i used a drywall style saw or keyhole saw, whatever you want to call it, for the half moon cut, a handheld saw with just a handle and blade,
    then use a half round file to clean it up and then some sandpaper.
    it comes out looking like you never even cut it!!
    on the ears i also used the keyhole saw, but i also had to use a dremel with a heavy rasp, then i went to the file and sandpaper.
    took a little extra time maybe 45 min total to do both ears and the half moon cut, but it turned out nice.

    What are these "ears" I've never heard of them?

    They are the holes that are on the sides of the reverse bucket.

    Look at the pump with the bucket down - it has 2 protusions that resemble ears. Inside each ear is a slot. That slot can be enlarged to get more water flow when in reverse... Ron
