Alternate Ride Plate Mounting
« on: August 24, 2011, 05:33:37 AM »
Thought I would start a new thread regarding Ride Plate Mounting options.

The standard way appears to require that the pump intake be removed from the hull and a recess machined into the intake.

David mentioned that Carreradude (Mike) knew of a method which does not require machining the ride plate.

A bolt on kit will help some, but it will never do what a properly machined/ installed deal will do. But if you only run 70 or less and only want a slightly better ride quality, then that could be enough for you. You will lack any real adjustability for the load or bow angle lift. We have pulled more than several of those in different brands and then machined the intake for the real deal. It depends on what you expect from the kit and whom you believe. We also have more than a few jets that run 80+ with a stock intake deal. There is more than one way to skin a cat(but don't tell that to the wife).    TIMINATOR

Have used, sold and sold these for years and although they are not a substitute for a custom machined intake shoe and ride plates setup, they do function fairly well , they would be appropriate when one simply doesn want to go to the time and expense of removing the intake The kits run around $250 and are typically in stock  Tom
