    js550/650 build

    Bought a 1988 js550 for $240 dollars that needs some love. The engine was full of water so i decided to throw in a 650 I have laying around. I plan to tear everything down and repaint and re-assemble everything. As of right now I need a 550/650 conversion plate, steering cable, am waterbox, 650 pipe and maybe a different pitch prop (unsure on what size works best). Will post pictures along the way. Thanks, Zach

    IMG_1682.JPGIMG_1688.JPGIMG_1689.JPGIMG_1687.JPGIMG_1686.JPG Took all the decal and turf off as well as all the parts. It is now ready to be sanded then painted. Also have a few cracks to patch. What should I use to patch these cracks? 650sx pipe found, still need a prop, waterbox, and steering cable. Lastly, are 650 steering cables the same as a 550?

    The Cables are not the same.

    I believe I have most of the parts you need.

    -Conversion plate
    -550 steering cable
    -steep Skat impeller for the conversion

    Send me a PM if interested in working out a deal.

    IMG_1787.JPGIMG_1786.JPG installed the conversion plate and set it in the hull to see how it looks. Still have a lot more cosmetic work to do before I can put it back together. Slowly coming together.
