    wear ring issue

    guys...i just took my old prop off to drop my new solas in, and it seems that i have a clearance issue with the new prop. it is slightly "catching" on the wear ring in 2 small spots. i can spin it freely, but when i hits either spot i need to force it to get it past. i inspected it and i can see 2 little raised areas on the wear ring where it is catching. so my questions is this: could i let the new prop and ring "wear" together to solve the issue, or should i just replace the whole housing altogether? i know the answer will most likely be just replace but i am on a budget so im just looking for an alternative. if replacement is reccomended, could you suggest using the housing from Island with the plastic ring? thanks for all your help guys

    Common for swelling with the SS units. You can only replace it from here. You can go with the plastic but, they don't hold up well if you do lots of hole shots

    Skat-Trak can rebuild your wear ring with a thicker liner. They cost more than a new one, but are more resistant to swelling.

    or you can get full SS one from Riva, other than the nuts being painful to get on and off they are pretty good and far better than OEM as they are solid SS not SS lined like the yami ones.
