    Default How tight is too tight? Quick impy to wear ring Q?

    Long story just went through my jet, time to put the impy in and I would have swore I had heard on here a few weeks prior someone said to set em at 010. Long story short lookin at another wear ring thread on a different board got my curiosity up and the berk manual says .025 - .035. I don't mind pullin it apart no biggie.....but I dont get it....I guess set it that loose cause your thrust bearing is gonna wear that much?

    When racing and it starts seizing with metal to metal contact, then it is a little too close. Otherwise, on the lake, give it a little clearance. You know there is a lot of sand out there

    Gear

    PS, I set a MSDBA record back in 1986 with a wear ring that was seized to the impeller and spinning in the insulator. The boat ran fast enough for the record and win, but needed a new impeller and wear ring after the race.
