    Transom Plate-Should I seal it?


    I am in the process of going to a 160mm wear ring and impeller. Thanks Jerry! I have removed just about everything on pump except the transom plate. I have heard that a poorly sealed transom plate can cause cavitation, which I have been experiencing...but I don't want to take it off if I don't have to. Don't fix it if it ain't broken.

    What should I look for? The attached pictures show the transom plate installed. There is a fingernail size gap between the plate and pump tunnel. Other than that. It seems to be well aligned.

    Thoughts? Suggestions? Thanks.Click image for larger version.

    I did mine just to be sure. You are right there, so if your ever going to do it now is the time, plus you can fill the voids in it to possibly help with your cavitation.
