    For those of you with Solas impellers.............

    I found a way to keep the "boot" on the front of the impeller. I have heard that many of you have had your boot come off and back its way up the drive shaft.

    I took a narrow wood chisel, and hit the threads sideways GENTLY, in a few places around the threads to slightly "marf" them up. I made sure that I did not touch the first few threads so I could get the boot started.

    Yep, it is a bit tougher to screw on the boot after doing this, but that is what you want. I have had the boot on a week now, with about 15 hours of riding and it has not moved at all.......

    No the aluminum boot threads will not wreck the stainless threads. Stainless is much too hard to cause any problem.

    If your really anal, put some locktite on there to make you feel better.

    Did the same thing, yes I'm anal, and yes I did use red locktite, but just a little dab!! 15 hours and no cavition.

    If I could get another cone maybe I would try it. My cone threads got used up when it came loose.Todd
