    what's that rubber ring for?

    with a few sets of pumps in my hands for my project.. i am just curious... that rubber ring attached to the metal ring that the steering nozzle mounts to... how important is that to keep? can't imagine that staying on for a high speed GPR.
    i did a search, can't find any reference to it.

    It fills that void between the steering and exit nozzle. Trim ring. Its there for a reason.

    i have not seen one come out i have seen the felt around the pump shoe fall out and a ruber impeller cone vanish after lots of 70+ mph runs. Ron

    what do you mean by the rubber impeller cone? the cone behind the pump or the plastic liner?

    neither the cone in front of an aftermarket impeller i had a rubber impeller cone for my solas concord, for one ride when i got home and pulled the pump out it was gone guess too much pressure down there to use the rubber ones it has this one now ...

    So how come the newer Gpr's didn't have these? Ive always kind of wondered about the 1200 rubber ring... Has anyone ever tested with and without it back to back?
