Impeller wear ring ????
I have been doing a lot of mods to my ski since I purchased it this winter in Chicago. I noticed that the Impeller wear ring is starting to so some wear (very little, I just want to catch any problems before they get costly.) I changed the impeller to a Solas 13/19 and didn't see this wear.
I started to see the wear when I changed the intake grate to a R&D GP800R grate. Could the excess cavitation cause the wear ring to wear prematurely? The wear that I am seeing is around the entire wear ring. Should I change to a GP1200R intake grate?
Also I notice that the impeller does not sit exactly in the center of the wear ring housing. It is a few thousanths further to the left side of the boat. It almost looks like the impeller is touching the wear ring on the left side with a larger gap on the right side. Top and bottom look OK. Should I take off the transom plate and realign? Or is this normal?
Thanks for the help?

The 800 grate will cause your wear ring to wear faster. I would get a new wear ring and see if that centers your impeller better. It's pretty common the have more wear on one side of the ring.
