    How Do I block visibility spout and bailer hole in Exit Nozzle?

    I was contemplating putting my 5 deg. nozzle back on and was wondering if there is an easy to block up the bailer tube hole and the visibility spout hole. I am running a 3 deg. nozzle right now with no complaints but figure the 5 deg. might be worth an extra 1-2 mph.

    Thanks
    TD

    TD,take the hose off and just fill the hole in the nozzle with JB Weld.It can be drilled out easily later on.

    I have never fooled with the stuff, is JB Weld strong enough to handle all that water pressure, and are you able to sand it from the inside to make it flush with the sides of the exit nozzle?

    What they said ... for a real quick (and strong) fix, just put duct tape over the hole inside the nozzle and pour/drip in JB weld. Let it set, pull off the duct tape, you're set. Most of us are more uptight and pull the nozzle off, grind down the dang bump, THEN fill with JB Weld, but I don't think the extra work actually adds any speed ...

    agreed, no speed gain.
