    4-tec plastic pump question. Anyone done this?

    Has anyone tried installing a stainless steel wear ring in the 03 type plastic pump housing? I would expect that it should make the pump very rigid and should eliminate the flex issue that causes abnormal wear and cavitation. I was thinking of trying this along with an adhesive to firmly bond the ring to the housing.

    Maybe its not something that was done? How about opinions?

    My opion is that the plastic stator section of the plastic jet pump is the weak link-- w/ a stainless wear ring the stator will still move under load and at that point with the stainless wear ring in place the impeller will take a beating. Also, the plastic stators are very prone to damage (additional movement) which will cause excellerated impeller damage.

    I would recommend just putting the $$ you were going to spend on the stainless wear ring into a nice aluminum pump and a new oem wear ring.
