American Turbine Performance Parts Infomation
The American Turbine bowl is the best flowing bowl in the jetdrive industry
as proven by the Haliburton Flow Lab as well as Smokin N Strokin, officially
the "World's Fastest Jet Boat." American Turbine manufactures bowls to
replace the Berkeley JB & JG pumps as well as Dominator. American Turbine
now offers its bowl with a double sealed grease lubricated tail bearing.
HIGH PERFORMANCE INTAKE KIT
The high performance intake kit is designed for any craft that runs
in excess of 60 mph. As the horsepower of the engine is increased, the
ability of the stock intake to direct enough water to the pump unit is
limited. By adding shoes of different depths we are able to lower the biting
edge of the intake surface, therefore more water is directed to the drive.
The ride plate affords the craft extra planing surface behind the shoe
to ride on, which un-wets the hull for increased speed.
Three different snoots are offered by American Turbine.
1. LONG SNOOT R6201
Works well on heavy boats with turbine trims. Increases leverage on
the hull, but because it does not drop down, the steering and or nozzle
does not drag, which causes an ill handling boat at low speed. Must use
an American Turbine high flow nozzle.
2. HIGH FLOW DROOP SNOOT R6301
Designed after the original droop snoot but it incorporates the new
high flow design. Available with either full reverse or straight thru race
nozzle. Works well on lightweight, high performance hulls as well as any
boat that requires tail lift and bow lift.
3. ORIGINAL DROOP SNOOT AND DROP NOZZLE HOUSING R6107 / R6007
The droop snoot can be purchased as an assembly complete with nozzle
reverse bucket, tiller arm and rudder, or you may purchase the drop nozzle
housing separately. NOTE: If you are installing a Berkeley nozzle you MUST
limit the turning radius by adding a screw on each reverse pin boss so
the nozzle o-ring will not turn out past the housing.
IMPELLER / WEAR RING
American Turbine produces impellers and wear rings as a direct replacement
for Berkeley, Dominator, Jacuzzi Energizers and Converted jetdrives. American
Turbine impellers are available in hard anodize high tech aluminum as well
as super strong stainless steel. We offer two impellers that are larger
and more efficient than Berkeley or Dominator. Wear rings are manufactured
with a front shoulder which helps prevent high pressure water from by-passing
to the front of the impeller.
American Turbine manufactures a kit that converts the Jacuzzi Model
YJ and Eagle axial flow (low pressure) pump to a much more efficient mixed
flow (high pressure) pump. The Energizer offers the customer a boat that
will run the same speed or faster at a lower RPM. The Energizer upgrade
involves removing the Jacuzzi unit from its intake adapter. The Energizer
kit retains FIVE parts of the original Jacuzzi pump. The bearing cap, suction
piece, inspection cover, transom housing and the mechanical seal from the
shaft assembly. A new shaft assembly, wear ring adapter, impeller, bowl
and steering are provided by American Turbine. The cost of the kit is comparable
to that of a major overhaul. A cost effective solution for the owner, the
increase in resale of the boat, often pays for the total cost of the conversion.
The Turbine Trim was designed for boats that use a single lever control,
i.e. throttle/shifter, or that require more reverse thrust such as large
boats or boats used on rivers where reverse is so critical. If you have
experienced situations with your Berkeley or Dominator where increased
RPM while in reverse has a tendency to raise the reverse bucket, negating
the reverse thrust, then the Turbine Trim is the right choice for you.
All turbine trims come standard with the ultra trak rudder and changeable
nozzle inserts. We have found the discharge diameter can be tailored to
your specific need, i.e. a large diameter discharge can reduce the engine
RPM at skiing speed by 200 or more Rpm's. Conversely, by reducing the discharge
diameter an increase in top speed can be seen.
