0 or 5 degree nozzle
Im trying to figure out which nozzle I have. How can you tell the difference between the 2. I have a 1998 GP1200.

5 for glass picks up speed
0 for chop

Look at the side of the nozle you will see a small check mark the 0 deg is at 0 deg or on center the 5 deg has a check mark that is 5 deg of of center or 5 deg up.

if it hasnt been touched...than it would be the 5 degree, but like they said, check the notch.

I'm thinking about running a 0 deg with my skat pump.. I'm thinking it would own in light ripple to
chop..what do you guys think? Did any one produce any after market nozzles?

ok... now Im confused I have a stamped 65u that has what I thought the 5 deg 'UP' pitch and also a 63* that comes streight out..
the 65u if mounted ,is not symetrical, the bottom half from centerline is 'ballooned' out as compaired to the top..
(is that the 5 deg? please point out where is the angle marking is? )
the 63* I have is a streight out...perfectly symetrical
I am thinking that with the gp760 needing nose down attitude(rear plate shims) the 63* would be best...
this is on the 144 to 155 conversion ..
DUMB QUESTION.. IS THERE A NOZZEL THAT IS 'DOWN'??(eliminate my plate shiming)This would force the nose down via water pressure not plate shim's that scrub speed..
I have the SHO metal steering nozzel for this.. if i have this bored on the 5 degree down (besides what Carl/ISLD has done already ,would you think this would apply enough constant 'down'?)
