    If you have everything out, what's visibly damaged?

    the prop is slightly bent not to the point of which i think speed would b lost im thinking the wear ring no major grooves but lots of scuffs from having things stuck and the last time i had to drive 13 miles to get back with the piece stuck in between prop/wear ring had the ski out again today im down3-4 mph and the rpms are good at 7700 where im usually at

    Wear rings are pretty tough, Most of the ones I have replaced are due to them having worn out over 200-300 hours of use or more.
