    Default Another bowl question

    I'm switching from a JC bowl to a split bowl and noticed something that I think is a problem.

    My new (to me) bowl is 1 3/4" thick inside the front mounting surface. My old JC was a bit less than 1". The back edge of the outer ring of my impeller is a bit less than 1 1/2". This means the new bowl will be sticking out behind the impeller blocking some water flow.

    Whats the best way to fix this ? Port the inside of the bowl to match the impeller, try to find a way to move the impeller back to match the bowl, or cut the front of the bowl to get it to line up inside ?

    Have a machine shop cut/blend the inside of the bowl to match the impeller.
