    New Solas & Wear ring

    The impeller and wear ring fit pretty tight and no I did not measure the clearance and it makes a "schee " you have to say it, type sound when I started it. Should I be concerned or just let it wear in. I only have about 16 hrs on it and there is no play in the bearing.

    I will tackle the 4" air tomorrow.

    Later, Ken

    Ok, I'm thinking that with a few hours on it were the inpeller touches the wear ring it will wear a couple of thousands off the surface of the wear ring. It's not like the new impeller had a ruff edge or anything like that so I was not going to file the edge of it.

    Ken, if it is slightly rubbing but able to turn you can just run it in but make sure you do it with water in the pump.
    Did you recieve the sc from JK?

    Did you put a new prop and wear ring? Did you smell anything burning? Take a close look inside the pump when you have a chance. After a wear ring replacement I either lube up the prop and wear ring with SD Lube or start the ski in the water. If the prop/wear ring is too tight it will damage the new wear ring and get melted plastic stuck to the prop.

    New wear ring and 15/22r Solas.
    I did not run it long.
    It smelled like bean oil.
    I could see some teflon dust and a very small amount of buildup on one leading edge of the impeller but the wear ring looks fine having a smooth appearance wear it touched.

    I am raising the moving deck on my iS now and will start with the 4" air. My RRFPR has not come in yet so the sc will have to wait for that.

    It's just self adjusting to the new ring and prop. Should be fine...
