    Support ring question

    Hello all

    Got some parts from Jerry today.

    Noticed on the support ring that it has a small nick which is quite rough when held against the carbon seal.

    Thinking it may cause a failure or premature wear.

    What do you think (photo attached)

    Sent jerry an email but will be a while before i get a response due to timezones.

    thanks
    Luke

    IMO it will be fine, the carbon seal only makes contact with the face of the support ring around the centre.

    I would take some 500-600 grit wet sandpaper to it and smooth it down if you are worried,
    make sure you do it perfectly flat, no high spots

    Jerry seems to think it will be ok, going to give it ago. Whats the worst that can happen

    Carbon ring gets surprisingly close to the edge of the support ring, only a mm or 2 to spare.
