    The front part of the grate the two corners should not hang lower than the shoe the back of the intake can hang a little about 20-30 thousands.

    I think if you look at the "post one speed trick" tread you will see this talked about.... I machined my grate smooth with the pump!

    Did you grind the pump seal kit so it does not hand lower than were the grate bolts up, Most of the time that is the problem.
