ff plate grinding
guys can anyone post me any photos of grinding done on pump/nozzle that has allowed them to fit up good angled plate...
ground the nozzle/pump for my k plate,so thought the ff plate would bolt straight up....
did and of you grind the stator section ect to get plates to fit snug..
thanks in advance for any info will check forum in morning and will take compleate section of pump to work....

Where the fixed cone and the stator housing come together - that thick ridge on the bottom side is what you need to grind. It is not flat on the bottom - it comes to a point in the middle. Grind some some off, put a piece of paper on top of your plate, and fit your plate up under there. If you can't pull the piece of paper out, grind some more. When you fit your plate up there, it will be obvious where you need to take some material off.

i know its a basic question but after getting as low as i did and still holding off (paper trick) i thought i better ask..
and i am assuming you are grinding back for fitment without the washers in the plate.....
well its so more to come off today,looks a very sweet looking bit of kit and will post numbers as soon as fitted..

Sorry to bring up an old thread, but I have a small dilemma concerning this. I have ground off quite a bit, and its pretty much plate on the bottom, and the plate still doesnt fit flush with the hull. Its close, but it doesnt touch. When trying to mount the plate, should I keep straight across, or angle it from front to back?
Thanks, I will try and get some pics.
