Unsafe, meaning at high speed, I have little to no control with negotiating left turns! this is also at very slow speeds.
Last year I had my main drive bearing go out and I replaced it and another pluse a main drive shaft, used my same stock impeller.
since I had the exhaust out having to move the engine forward to get the midshaft and main bearing out to replace, I know my carbs needed to be reworked. I rebuilt the carbs and got it back in the water with 100% full thrust fwd and to the right (plenty of power)! if I turn to the left it takes pretty much takes the whole lake to turn! "very unsafe! I thought it maybe the nozzle but checked it and right and left are to specs (24°)
I don't understand why I have ample power fwd and right but not left. Ive read that the engine torque/pump load, etc has an effect to this phenomenon but I never had the problem before. Seems like it had to be something going on with the pump system. I may pull it and look closer at all the specs.
Sorry so long!!
