How thin can I grind a ride plate?
Wow you really have to grind the pump and plate on the 2" extended models to get .950". How thin can the plate be taken down to before its too weak? I don't want to take it too far then bend or break it, thanks guys.

My pump is ground down so far that I almost need to grind the bolt heads.

Dont take too much out of the pocket. Try to keep it .070 +

Cool, thanks guys. I ground the bottom of the pump almost flat, and it needs more.

Did you get into the lip on the nozzle? mine is close!

I didn't get into the lip, but the sides where the bolts go through is where my plate was hitting, so I just ground that down a bit

you want to keep at least .070 thou left on the plate

Thanks for all the help guys. I don't think I would have taken the pump down to the bolts if I didn't hear others doing the same. Its hard to do on a boat thats brand new but I got it to .955". Friday will be break-in day, Saturday will be gps day. I want to see how fast I can get without engine work.
