    Question Does anybody know where to get a jet drive

    I am casually looking for a Jet drive and transom jack, It will be for a 90hp Yamaha four cylce, on back of a 19' G3 Delux john boat. I have not been looking hard but would appreciate being pointed in the best direction for a fair price and in the Anchorage area or within about 150 miles or so.
    Thank you
    Steve

    Any marine dealer or service shop that deals with Specialty Jet can order that pump. Shop around. While you're shopping take a look at the Specialty Jet adjustable transom bracket. I'm impressed with mine. Dewey's has one on display.

    Be sure to price out as many dealers as possible. Don't forget Perfromance Marine.

    you might go straight to outboardjets.com, they are the original outboard jet manufacturer I believe and thats where the marina that I worked for always got their jets. Any prop converted to a jet has always had one of these on it that I have ever seen. good luck, hydraulic transom jacks are the way to go and definitely help with cavitation problems in choppy water.

    Check out J. Kimberly in Anchorage. Their shop is one of the premier jet shops in Alaska and I'm sure he has both new and used units that will work for your motor. Great guys to work with as well.

    I would check with Reed's snowmachine and marine in Fairbanks, Some of the best prices I've seen in the state.

    I was just recently browsing alaskaslist.com and there were a couple of used jet pumps on there, one looked like it was from a yamaha and the others were aftermarket (stock red color)... Thought I would let ya know.
