  8. Proper way to size new wear ring?

    Jet Boats
    I am rebuilding a 12jc and the impeller clearance will be a little tight with an undersized .045 wear ring. Question, Do I install the .045 wear ring and cut the impeller to .025 clearance, or can I get a wear ring to the exact clearance needed to match my impeller?
