PG Mag Impeller plate 'wobbles'

Guys,

I run a PG Mag, and have noticed that my impeller plate has a 'wobble' to it that is causing one side of the impeller to wear a groove while spinning inside that rectangular bracket piece that envelopes the top of the impeller/shaft. It is not the plate itself, but the top of the impeller- the round portion that the shaft slides thru. It is well worn on one side and not worn on the other.

It doesn't appear the shaft is bent. Is this normal? It makes quite a racket when you throttle up and the impeller starts spinning.

DA

They just wear out. You need to order a new one. We just ordered one today and my guy said he was told they changed the design. It doesn't have a roll pin which is great because they were a pain to replace in the field.
