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.......

Mods? Hours? Stock prop?

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.???
