so why does my carbon ring look like this?
HMMM? motor out of alignment? or? Never had had cavitation issues, water in hull, rpm loss, etc.
Not sure if this thing is original ( 116 hours) or new as it was supposed to be replaced when i had my SC rebuilt.

What does the hat look like? It was off center.
I had a screwed c clip and my hat did not seat flat. I didn't get that pattern though.
Was it leaking?

it was pretty beat up. had a dent in one spot. unfortunately 09 and 10 rxpx didnt have the c clip style mine threads into the shaft. i lapped it a few times on a granite surface plate with some 220 carbide sandpaper and looks like new again.
is it possible it was still out of center if it threads into the drive shaft?

Had the same pattern on my Carbon Seal...come to find out the pump shoe was off alignment.....replaced the pump shoe and motor mounts and she is now good to go...
IF i were you i would look first for a broken motor mount,IF all mounts are good then get ahold of and alignment tool and check to see if your motor/shoe is aligned...

i jsut put the motor back in. other than visually inspecting the mounts, i saw nothing wrong with them. how do i check if my pump shoe is aligned correctly?
the pump support?

ya i found all the threads. debating if i should just buy the damn tool from sbt and do it my self. lets say my support is off. what do i have to do then? pull the support shim and re adhere with some of the "right stuff" ?
