    Stainless wear rings???

    I am going to change my wear ring and was just wondering. Instead of going back with a stock ring. I could pull my old one and give it to my dad who is a machinest and make a stainless one. Will this couse any problems? Is the stock one not made out of stainless for any reason or just to cut cost? Thanks in advance.

    Lots of us are running stainless wear rings. Skat Trak sells them for $248

    Do you have to do any mods to make the Skat Trak fit? Like wise if He makes one for me exactly like the stock one will I need any mods for it?

    No, they are just a replacement for the stock wear ring.

    Hulk would you recommend using a ss wear ring without the skat bearing mod or the rr engine mount?

    I did it for a long time, but if you do this just make plans to do the front mount, or 3 bearing mod, or better yet do both

    eventually the sucky single bearing in the pump will start to wear and the shaft will deflect allowing your impeller to rub on the wear ring.

    I see the front mount on your site, but where do I find the 3 bearing mod? Sorry for all the questions.
