    SS wear ring break-in?

    Hey guys I was wondering if there was any sort of break-in for the clearance between a new prop and a new stainless wear ring. I ask because the clearance between these 2 new parts seems SO close, that I know the prop edges will skim the wear ring to say the least.....and won't this dull out the edges of the blades a little?

    So, I was wondering if it's more healthy to install these parts and crank up the motor for a few seconds, or just install them and drop it right in the water before starting at all?

    Thanks,
    sean

    Spray wd-40 in there. Then hold the throttle floored and crank it (so it wont start) as long as you dont hear major rubbing, just drop it in the water and go..
