As has been said here many times before, thanks to the guys at HTP.
I had to pull my bowl after sucking up rocks again .
I decided to replace the impeller, wear ring and packing glands. I decided to go with the ultimate wear ring and try one of the shaft seals.
Brian hooked me up with great service and better instructions.
I can't believe the performance difference with the ultimate wear ring. Not having ANY water in the boat from the shaft is very nice too. Thanks again,
