Odd Wear Ring Problem
I was removing my prop today and found that the wear ring would come out all by itself??
It would actually spin in the pump very easily by turning the prop.
Has anyone ever noticed this?
Pump is headed to Scat tomorrow, do they set screw the SS ring in place?

No, the ss wear ring is a press fit.
By the way, Careys pump is headed to skat for the tripple bearings and ss wear ring tomorrow too

I hope it has a better fit than this POS.
Are you going to get a prop or wait a bit longer for more R&D?

I already have several 3 blades. Just waiting to test them and try different things. I was going to test a 3 blade in Carey's ski today, but ended up pulling a muscle in my back stayed in bed all day

when i was testing the SC and ECU last week and swapping props... i pulled the pump off, put it in a vice upside down on the impeller tool, and the wear ring just kept falling out... then when put a diff prop in and flipped the wear ring over and spun the prop, the wear ring would spin with the prop sometimes.... wonder if it's doing that when there's a load on the pump, that would suck

I had a conversation with Glen at Skat about this and he said its nothing to worry bout. By the way, under load the wear ring is not spinning in the pump. The pressure holds it tight.

Maybe you could drill and tap a set screw in place to hold it.
Just drill into the ring a few thousandths so not to press in on the ring only hold it from spinning.

when the pump unit is bolted back on the ski it should'nt spin, but check for signs of spinning when removed.

I did not notice any but still do not like the idea that it was happening?
