Aluminum Wear Rings
« on: May 12, 2012, 09:47:45 AM »
I offer aluminum wear rings that will eliminate the need to buy a replacement. After pumping mud, sand and various other debris through my pump for the past five months, I have come to the same conclusion as the rest of the jet pump world; in that aluminum offers excellent durability while still providing a sacrificial element to protect the impeller. I normally would go through 1 wear ring every month, at $28 a pop that would have cost me $336 a year!!!

Wear rings for the new, and old style, hulls are $85 + Shipping and include a pack of JB Marine Weld that will handle initial setup and at least 10 "rebuilds".






After 5 months of use and abuse. This thing will last many years and can be refinished with JB weld over and over and over again!!!

Hey Tom. I was wondering being new to this what are the symptoms of a worn ring and how long do they last? I noticed I have a plastic ring in mine... I want to know what it looks like when it needs replacing. I don't think I'll be going back to plastic. So most likely I'll be giving you a call when I need one...

As the ring wears, you will notice grooves in it and that will cost you speed. As often as I used my Mokai, I was going through a plastic ring every 2-3 weeks and would finally change after a month of trying to stretch it out longer. Aluminum lasts months between resurfacing, and can be resurfaced forever.

When your ring is out of life, give me a shout.  ;)

I was advised by Mokai that once you wear a 1/8" groove in the ring it is time to change it out.  I too will be going to Tom's wear ring once I use up the two plastic rings I have on hand.

The aluminum rings are a big improvement.  Tom fits the impeller to the ring also, to improve efficiency.  I have yet to have to resurface any of my rings.

Thanks gentlemen for all the input on the rings, Hillbilly, Hersh and Tom. I'll be going with the aluminum ring. Tom your products far surpass Original Equipment. Thanks for being there for your fellow Mokaiers...

Tom, are there any good pictures of your aluminum wear ring that needs resurfaced, can't find any in past threads?
I guess I'm due to resurface both of ours but would like to see a pic or video of one you might consider as past due. - thanks

You haven't done anything to them yet, run them for a few more months first.  ;)

Thanks Tom.
I can't imagine what the plastic wear ring would look like under the same trips we've taken.
