    Wear ring damage?

    I was able to put my iPhone 4 into the tunnel through the grate and took some pics below, it's the best I could do since I don't know how to take it off properly, does it look like my wear ring is the source of my cavitation, I'm seeing white on one side and black on the other.

    Norm,
    Welcome to the Hulk.

    You NEED to post year, make, and model for anyone to be able to help you! Just create a signature with your info.

    Here are some manuals: http://www.brpmanuals.com

    Yes the wear ring is trashed and the impeller needs some work also.

    White and black?? I'm pretty sure I'm just seeing a shadow on the right side from the blades.

    I don't know if it's glare from the sunlight or what, but is your ring a stainless wear ring?
    Meanwhile, looks like a lotta light coming in between the impeller and ring

    Yep...wear ring is jacked. I just had to get a new one a few weeks ago and took pictures just like you did but yours looks even worse than mine did. This is what mine looked like and even need replacing. How much top speed have you lost? I lost about 8 mph off the top end just from this small damage.

    You're correct, I was seeing a reflection of the prop, but after the ski rope intake, I'm now getting cavitation when I take off, so I'm bringing it to Perry Performance on Tuesday. Thanks for the help!
