    New Ring - Still Cavitating

    I put a new wear ring in this weekend and she still cavitates out of the hole. Speed is off by 2-3 mph. Any ideas? Prop issues possibly is what I am thinking. Any thoughts?

    Did you start in the water?
    If you start with a new wearring on the trailer,the prop damages the wearring a little, which creates cavitation.
    Check your wearring,this happened to me several times,first start in the water and i was fine.
    This mostly happens whit solas props ,stockers are a bit smaller and don't shave as much off the wearring.
    Might be another problem you have ,but you never know.

    I always start new rings in the water. I change them frequently. The water here is shit. It has never happened before.

    Check your accordian boot/carbon seal and prop/pump for debris or a bent blade.......

    +1. If the ring is new, you're sucking air from somewhere else.

    I also turn the prop in the pump by hand to "set" the wear ring before I put the pump back in. This usually results in a few plastic shavings in the pump as the prop cuts the new ring.

    Checked the boot and carbon seal and it seems normal. I will check the prop later tomorrow. I may have a blade issue. I sucked up a pine cone stem and burnt up the ring pretty bad. Lot of debris floating out there after the big rains we have had.

    Check your engine alignment/motor mounts. That will cause cavitation also. My bet is on that if you have checked the rest.

    Carbon seal I'd say, how many hours since that has been changed.???
