    Default Jet foot won't fit

    Purchased a jet for 85yamaha off craigslist but the foot doesn't fit. Question: how do I find out what the foot is for? It just has a Y on oneside of the jet and numbers on the other

    How is it not fitting? Outboard Jet has a few different cone diameters and a few years ago they changed the way the sleeve goes into the foot. Where older jets have a true cone that's retained by two bolts that extend into holes in the cone's sides, newer jet cones have a flange around the cone top that sandwiches in between the jet and foot when the foot is bolted on. Both styles are still supported with factory parts.

    The pins that help line up the pieces together were "pin to pin" I didnt know you could remove one of them, now I need a key for a yamaha remote control!
