    the hood I'm getting is the one pictured in the catalog

    I even THOUGHT About a Westcoast Dual Spark system.... but I opted not to, cuz its ridiculously rare and probably pretty expensive IF I can find one. plus my knowledge is limited with it i'll post pictures of the boat in its current state later.

    @ afraz1er Nope that was a lucky find, the guy who had hood mold showed me that page to confirm that was the hood I wanted.

    As promised here is pictures of the boat getting the make over, i'm gonna start the tear down in a week or 2 when i get a break from the rain.

    here is the first bit of work Done, these are stock 750 reeds, thing is 750s have 12 studs for the reeds as where the RC520 Cylinder only has 11 studs. so to make the reeds fit the Inside stud holes on reeds needed to be ground down.

    Next step I have to Send out Flywheel motor and pistons out to be machined @ newmillers

    Never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

    Re: Westcoast Themed 550

    Nice intake mani - those are rare!

    Reed cages - Westcoast just cut a little off the end of each one and used the OEM stock cages.
    1993 Laser Jet F15 - Mild port to PJS Cylinder.
    1992 550 SX - R&R port Kawi Reed, Kind of fast.
    1989 JS 550 - PJS motor Dual 46's, 50 MPH on GPS.
    1989 Wet Jet - Upgraded 1994 50 HP motor & exhaust.
    1986 JS 550 - Engine built. Working on fiberglass!
    1976 JS 400 - Pretty much just a shell.

    Re: Westcoast Themed 550

    @BLRider I dont its a guessing game for me, been trying to contact of Terry Beatty or Herry Klemm.
    @MrSki Thanks for the Mani!

    I haven't mad any progress this week, my right hand man to help with tear down had to work, plus busy with real estate agent and lender. aside from that Chris at Newmiller recived my parts to be machined.
    Picked up a Windrosa Head and exhaust gasket plus a new set of Pro-X crank seals and lastly a Bilge pump (hope its right one).

    f8f5_12.jpgs-l500 (1).jpgs-l1600 (1).jpgs-l1600.jpg

    Anyways the next steps are i'm going to remove everything from inside the hull, pressure wash it, then use an off-white glossy appliance paint and do the inside of the hull.

    Also I think I'm going to paint the mounts red. I just don't know what I'll paint the Bedplate or the crank cases (gonna pressure wash these too)... opinions welcome.
