I would call Wiegel Brothers Marine in Franklin (they have a website) for ANYTHING Evinrude. Beyond being Evinrude wizards, they are jet specialists.

What Strut said. Wiegel Bros is the authority on jets in Western PA. A 50 hp will convert to a 35 jet so don't bank on near the same performance as your prop. Another thing to consider is that your transom will more than likely need a riser fabricated and put on. Only 1 company makes jet pumps, Outboard Jet. Check their website for pricing.
