Install on SS Wear Ring
Well got my SS Wear Rings today and when I went to install them I found them to be MUCH harder to seat into the pump. First try after the freezer trick for the SS ring itself and I found I could only get it halfway in. So THEN I put entire pump and SS ring (half installed ) in the freezer for two hours and THEN I get a block of wood and a rubber hammer and beat the **** out of it for about ten minutes to get it to inch in the rest of the way. THEN put it out in the sun so it will expand slightly and then I installed impeller. So don't get discouraged if it takes a while to get the SS wear ring seated!!! LOL

I use a 5# hammer and a wooden block and they drive right. Just make sure you tap it in evenly, or it will give you fits.

How do you get one back out if you ever need to in the future? Cutting stainless with out cutting into the aluminum pump sounds near impossible.

Well, I had to replace mine because i had a bunch of shaft deflection that caused burning on one side of the wear ring. Had to replace the prop too. If you don't have this problem, you may never have to replace it.
