    New Eckler Jet and Spray owner 701 XTC

    Hi everyone. Great site here. This is my first post but I have been lurking here for a while. I just picked up this great shape 95 Eckler Jet n Spray 701XTC. Has the Yammi 701 with the 144mm pump I believe. What a great , versatile, little craft. I had been looking for something like this since I missed out on a Boston Whaler Rage with the Yammi set up a few years ago. Got this beauty for $2k with new trailer. Seems like a low use unit. Super clean. Injection has been removed so now just premix which I prefer. I never trusted that oil injection.
    Looking for info on this. I plan to add a more modern looking graphics package to it and using it at my winter place in Florida. I love how small this thing is. I plan to tow it to our neighborhood launch with my golf cart!

    Welcome and Nice score! I love these littl boats and can't say enough about them.

    You should already have the 701 midshaft but if you dont it would be a nice
    Upgrade. They tend to leak there if the pump is not set up right. Do not trust anything
    Eckler let go out their shop. Also, check you deck dumps for broken lines, they leak there also.
    Its also a good Ideal to check engine and couples alinement as well as the pump
    is shimed properly.

    Good luck and enjoy your new boat!

    Use ur eyeball and a straightedge for the coupler. On the pump let it fall where it wants and then shim it and bolt it down

    I know you saw the one I have on ebay but this is my personal Jet & Spray. Has skinny bars, 12 gal WaveRunner fuel tank, variable feed oil injection and my custom trademark office chair. The ver oil injection saved 3 me gallons per month in oil during fishing season. Just put in a new engine today, old one had Some pistion slap.
