JB Weld trick - SS or OEM ring?
So i was searching the forums to find out how tight the allan bolt needs to be when reinstalling an impeller on an RXP - still havent found that info
Meanwhile, i found this thread below describing the tip on filling scars in the wear ring with JB Weld. My stupid question on that is if this trick is for the SS wear rings only? because i dont recall that JB Weld sticks to platic (been forever since ive used it). I have a SS wear ring but neither type of ring is specified in the thread.

Yea i have some light scarring now....thanks to passing a few small rocks recently Nothing horrible, but enough to want to fill with a cheap fix like this.

So the JB weld wont stick to the SS rings? I wonder if i should at least smooth down the scars (de-burr them) with some 400-600grit

Yea I'll probably give it a shot. Im just concerned about the impeller blades sustaining any wear if this stuff starts to come loose (??).
So do we just crank down on that allan bolt on the impeller of is there a specific torques setting?
Thanks a lot by the way

No problem, I go by feel when tightening the prop but I believe the correct torque is around 90 ft lbs.

Prop torque per manual... 59 ft. lbs.
