On my 1999 GTX Limited, is the wear ring metal or plastic? Is there a piece of Black plastic that fits in the boot/hull area? I have a piece of like 1/16" thick black plastic jammed between my impeller and output vanes on my jet pump.

My other ski is a 2001 GTX. Looking at the impeller from under the boat, through the intake grate, there is a Black "ring" about 2"-3" wide. That plastic piece looks like what is chewed up and jammed in my pump. What is it ??
