    Stainless Steel wear ring RXP

    Just installed my SS wear ring. BFH and a piece of wood and not that bad.
    I can see thrust improving, the clearance between the prop and the ring is the tightest I have ever seen. ( a pube will not fit, I tried)
    Question,
    This thing is permanent huh? I dont see it ever coming out. freezer trick aint doin it. Maybe liquid nitrogen?

    the liquid nitrogen would do it.

    I had skat do mine when they did the triple bearing. so I don`t know just how tight that sucka is. I often wondered what it would take to pop it out if necc. Word of caution: ss wear rings def don`t like rocks, I know, massacred a fairly new skat prop to! ...PR...

    Thats what kept me from buying it PR. I bought another used RXP pump and it will sit on the shelf in a glass case saying "in case of emergency break glass" I will not be layed up for any amount of time this year....

    Steve, It is not permanent, I have removed mine twice before. It is a little tricky though.... I took my Black and Decker workbench and removed the center piece. Flip the pump upside down with the ring facing the ground through the open slot. Support the pump on all sides and take a rubber mallot and tap the pump while putting your hand under the ring to make sure it does not fall out and hit the ground. As you are tapping you will feel the ring slowly coming out until it is all the way out. That's it....

    I made a set of wear rings out of aluminum just for testing and it slip right in cold but a pain in the butt to get out.Never again well I try aluminum it washes out quick, will be stainless as soon as I get the tripple bearing upgrade.I still have one aluminum wear ring if somebody would like it.

    you dont need a triple bearing upgrade for a ss wear ring. the front mtor mount is probably a good idea though.

    just tapping on the pump? what/how? you mean tapping the sides, or tapping the ring out with block of wood or something?...PR...
