With my flash steam hydroplane 129.33mph rpm under load at about 11,000.
I used meehanite dykes ring and just placed a shim in the gap and heated evenly to red heat then cooled slowly with no problems.

There is another thread on this forum addressing the same thing. Do a search for it. Most of the answers are only days old. Tons of good information there.
