What are these and what do they do? I have never removed them before because I don't know what they do or what they are for. They sit above the wear ring so my best guess would be that they have something to do with the wear ring, but I dunno. Thank you.

looks to me like where someone previous has staked the wear ring in the housing:D

That is a bad thing, right? But the one on the left is just a plug fitting. That couldn't hold anything, could it? Thanks.

What kind of damage? Like a chipped fin or something? Because I do have that. Look!

someone prob had a wearring spin or get loose in the housing, so they pinned the next 1, that or they like to run a reallllly tight pump.


i've always wonder how come someone couldn't make a water hose set-up to inject water into the wearing area for guys without jetaways, so we could run without disconnection the motor.

i had a fin like that, i trimmed both fins down to match each other then i put a knife edge on both. can't even tell anything was done if ya just glance at it, and my boat is still on rails at 100mph.

Thats a really good idea. I can't see any reason why it wouldn't work. But, I'm new to this, so I really don't know. If anybody knows of a reason why you can't run a water injection system on a wear ring out of the water, put it on this thread. I would really like to know if I could do this. Thanks.

Is it better to do that or try to build it back up with epoxy or resin? Because I have it out of the boat and am planning on doing some machine work to it. Thanks.

epoxy will snap loose and end up in your pump, not a good idea. i had a loader get loose on me a couple yrs back, knocked loose some flow work i'd done in the suction housing and that flow work jammed between the back of my BRAND NEW impellor:mad: broke a blade off, cost me a rebuild and had to redo the flow work.


if the intake is still out, have someone heli arc it up and have them machine it for a shoe and ride plate.

i was just thinkin that if some put 3 holes thru the housing and wearring, and built a lil plumbing set-up to hook it to h20, it'd see more water than it would at the lake. just a crazy thought, prob wouldn't work and i'm not gonna be the giunea pig:D could even use the over pressure from a bypass valve to shoot the extra water back at the wearing instead of overboard, at least there wouldn't be any water pressure wasted.

I agree with 1 if the intake is out get it fixed right you wont be sorry later!

I thought about this one time! But doesent the water going through the pump center the impellor to keep from wearing?
