    About prop

    Ok my buddie just got the wear ring out by putting it in the freezer like some of you suggested. He also reversed the wear ring because it was marked up. Now the prop will not go back inside the wear ring without having to sand the wear ring is this right?

    You have to get it PERFECTLY STRAIGHT! Remember there is only a .014 gap between the Impeller and the wear ring. I just installed my SS wear ring and my new Solas prop and it took my 5 minutes to get the prop in there...just take your time, NO SANDING, and it will go right in!

    Spray the wear ring with some WD40 or something slick. And it will go in...Don't sand anything...

    I just put one in this weekend and the impeller was rubbing the wear ring after installation. I think that is normal. I put synthetic grease on the inner sides of the wear ring to help out when the impeller wears the ring on startup.

    Nope no Triple Bearing mod for me yet...

    Will probably hold off for next year, as I am fresh out of money!
