6. What is the ideal clearance between the impeller and liner?-

The clearance is approximately 1/32 of an inch (.03125). There is some off center between impeller and liner due to manufacturing tolerances so check at the closest point. Less than 1/32 of an inch is ok if the impeller does not rub. More clearance than 1/32 of an inch will drop pressure and performance.
