I'm using a Kawasaki 750 as motor and was wondering if I could attach a waterhose to the intake hose so I could test run at home,also where should I run my exast,out the bottom or out the back?

Yes to the hose. Just don't rev it to much. I would run the exhaust out the back. So if it leaks you don't sink and it's an easy fix. Make one of those pee streams too!

Not sure about a Kaw, but on Polaris you are supposed to start the motor 1st then turn on garden hose. Apparently water can backflow thru exhaust ports if motor isn't running 1st.

I'd get the exhaust to be as low as possible, as it will be loud. Make sure it routes above max waterline, so it can't siphon water.

I'm thinking about using a flexible radiator hose for the exhaust, the rubber hose from the ski won't work,what says the jet john guru's

As long as it is same diameter, should work. It doesn't get very hot since it is water cooled exhaust.

'Green Hulk' is a great website for PWCs. They will have the info you are looking for. I got a shop manual for my Polaris, that is very helpful.

On the carb rebuild, get an OEM kit, the aftermarket ones are junk. Consider a new fuel pump. It it goes lean you will burn pistons up.

I think most of the converted jet boats I've seen use a "stick steer" like an air boat.

Are you going to use jet-style 135 degree helm?

You might have to get a custom cable too.
