    measure the W/W surface on both imp. and see if they are the same. If they are, you can run it. If it's not, well, whats another hundy to drop to make it right.

    will take some exact measurements. the new impellor, on the skirt should measure 7.225 dia. o.d. the wear ring should measure 7.250 i.d , giving you a .025 total clearance between the wear ring and the impellor. also a heads up that the new impellor should have .025-.035 clearance between the front of the impellor skirt and the inside of the lip of the wear ring. when the imp. is torqued. hop this helps.

    If it were me, maybe you have better tools than i do, I would cough up the dough for a fresh ring. its sucks but i would not trust my own measurements. I would send it off to someone like HTP or JBP to measure and trust their assesment but i cant measure for jack.
