Wear ring and impeller replacement.
How long does it typically take? Do I have to remove the rideplate?

On a 96xp, no you do not have to remove the ride plate. Should take about 2-3 hours your first time.

I use mobil 1 synthetic automotive rear end lube, but thats just because i have it in stock. It works great, but very exspensive.

Thanks guys. Any tricks on getting the old wear ring out? I've heard about freezing the new one to get it in. The manual doesn't really go over replacement, just removal. Do I need to put silicone on the new one to hold it in place?

Removal is not that bad. I have cut them out with a dremel before, just be VERY careful that you don't go too deep. I have also tapped them out as well. Use a screw driver from the back and tap with a hammer. Once it is about a 1/2 inch out, grab the front with vice grips, and tap the vice grips with a hammer. You will have to keep moving the vice grips to bring the wear ring out evenly.
I do not use silicone when I put them back in. I would freeze the ring and place the ppump out in the sun. Should drop right in. Try using a nice piece of wood and a rubber mallet to tap it home and ensure a tight fit

You have to either cut or force the ring out of a 140mm pump.
When the new ring starts to warm up after being frozen it will be plenty tight.

I cut mine with a sawzall. One with 1/2" stroke cuts perfect on depth. Cut it in 4 places- 12, 3, 6, and 9 oclock, and it will fall right out.
