    If it's a delrin ring or whatever they make them out of these days it's fine. Run it. It will clearance itself in there. You want it to fit tight.

    it does fit tight but it should turn all the way around by hand instead of 3/4 around and then hits the tight spot. i really dont think it should be that tight. from what i read there should be a very tight clearance but no tight spot??

    Back it in the water and start it. It will sort itself out.

    if it was tight all the way around I probably would run it but with it tight in 2 spots has me concerned.

    Crank it up and it will shave off the tight spots.
    I've seen little white pieces fly out the back after wear ring installs.
    Fire that bitch up.
