Warrenjet 30 outboard

Hi all! I've just aquired one of these engines - never seen the like!! A water jet outboard. Has anyone had any experiance with these, I would be most interested? Mine seems ok, but does not have a spark, so must be either ht lead or coil (I've checked the plug!). I need a puller to get at these, so can't progress at mo, but will be trying to get it going soon. Can't wait to see how it performs.

Re: Warrenjet 30 outboard

How do these do when you get sand or weed in the intake?? That big opening at the bottom looks like it would suck in a lot of small fish!!!

I can see that being a problem on a dinghy that might need to be run up onto a beach pretty regularly, what with the bottom intake like that.

No spark? You will probably find the potting compound on the coil full of cracks, a common problem on these antiques. Was there a garage sale at the Smithsonian?
