    Ride plate clearance

    When installing an aftermarket modded plate there is significant grinding that must be done to the pump. IMO there must be a decent amount of clearance to make room for plate flex.

    Flapper wheel can be bought at ACE hardware and grit is 36, anything less is a waste of time. I am the believer of having an 1/8" of gap between the pump and ridplate in order to not have the impression of the pump on your $500 investment.

    Amen brother! I was grinding on my pump @ my shop and had been on it for 10 minutes and was going no where. My machinst saw me and brought me one of these wheels. It then took less than 5 minutes to complete with this disc. You almost have to be carefull, you can remove too much, too fast.

    Good post Duke. On the skat pumps, they use a screw to locate the pump insert in the housing. You "may or may not" have to clearance the screw so that it doesn't hit the rideplate.

    hoiw hard is it to get the pump assesmbly off?

    i guess its easier to grind it with it off but is this a major effort to remove it and get it back on???

    or can you be lazy and grind it while attached to the ski?

    are there any instructions handy on removing this????
