Did you ever fix this? The proper size jet you needed was 3/4 no larger <-good_>
Hot is awesome anything else is just bland.

  I think you need a larger pump. 9000 gph is only 150gpm, based on what a 3" dredge uses you would need 250 gpm

  minimum to get the vacuum needed for a three inch hose to be able to suck gravel and then push it that far. The reason

  it sucks at the same level as the high banker is it's not having to over come the head pressure it has to when below it.

  If your running a trash pump instead of a jetting pump, sell it and get the pump you really need for the job.

  Looks like you did a good job  on the nozzle , I even like the color!
