    Aftermarket wear ring

    Anyone use these 6061 aluminum wear rings? Do they hold up well? I'm sure they'd be easier for me to weld to that the cast polaris rings, but wear on the impeller might be a concern.

    I'm using a WSM stainless steel one.
    I wouldn't want to use aluminum. It will wear faster and become out of spec.

    The OD on the stainless rings is an issue for me as is the weight.

    Well then I guess you don't have a choice. If the OD and the weight are a problem, you will have to use the aluminum. Tradeoffs.... You just may need to replace it sooner.

    I can use used ones though... That's what I'd like a comparison to.

    I see..... I recall going down this road before, but don't seem to remember hearing from anyone who had actually tried one..... And long enough to comment on durability....

    That's the impression I got too. Thanks though.
