    Jdpilot- Backup/spare/copper x2 refresh build

    Yup, I know, its shocking. But, I have FOUND time to continue with a build. It officially starts today due to lack of snow. I am pulling the copper/backup X2 off the rafters today and onto the surgery table. Reminder pix;
    I went from this;


    To this;


    Then lastly this (optional pontoons for the wife (Thanks Joe)/ and new bars (Thanks Glynn)/Limited Surf slam copper blowsion grips/finger throttle/UMI base on stock stem/renthal pad// 15.5 prop, coffman pipe, bad bones reeds, DG intake mani, bilge, west coast tank);





    So the plan. I originally wanted to keep this as a no nonsense boat. HA! that didnt last. This will be a lake boat. Built as a buoy chaser for fun. I want to have a similiar riding experience to my surf boat, without the noisy water box, and different handling characteristics for fun. Surf boat has an uptrim installed. This will have a drop nozzle. The box of parts I have been collecting for this build since the end of summer, that will work with the mods I added last year, includes;

    -A red 42mm Keihin carb. Sent to group K for the work I always have done to my 42s (bored seat to 2.0)
    -NOS mariner reed stuffers
    -Ocean pro intake filter
    -Stock head I sent to group K. Was machined for 185 using their "sleeper" mod. I just drilled the dual cooling boss yesterday
    -Extra fittings for dual cooling on the pump
    -Extra fittings to tap the stock 93 diverter exhaust manifold for dual cooling
    -Rebuild kit for carrier bearing
    -Rebuilt kit for pump
    -Stock nozzle I sent to group k for their "sleeper" mod boring
    -Stock flywheel I sent to group K for "sleeper" mod lightening
    -New bendix
    -New starter
    -Newly redone JSS coil and stator
    -Wet wolf stubby nozzle cone
    -Heres the fun one for buoys (or in my case moorings lol). Suncoast NOS drop nozzle kit. (Works with stock trim. Set the trim where you like, then at WOT a small piston pushes the nozzle full down.

    Should be a fun project. Not too drastic, could be done in a weekend. But I plan to putter on it evenings til spring. Pix to come...

    And no... The SJ is STAYING stock lol...

It's one of those "why didn't i think of that" kits. Never seen one in use and have only seen a couple on ebay in the last 7 years.

    I have never seen the automatic drop nozzle. Very cool part! Sounds like you will have a nice back up X2.

    This thread makes me want to start a build thread for the project I have been slowly working on.

    Wonder if you could set that piston to push the nozzle up when you throttle it off a wave. Cool piece though!

    Tinkering slow but sure. Sprayed my group K milled head with copper engine enamel, matches the copper highligts on the boats exterior. Didnt bead blast it as I should have, so its not perfect. Just spot sanded and acetoned it. But who cares, its a head that wont get much sunlight anyway.

    Finally popped the group k milled head on her today. 145 psi stock on original 1993 motor that's never been apart. Now pushing a "cautious" 165psi. jugs looked pretty good. Resealed with a new gasket and 1211
