    Freeze the ring, heat the pump, line up a 2x4 over the ring and hammer it in.

    I put the pump out in the sun on some concrete and put the wear ring in the freezer. Wait a few hours and then the wear ring drops right in.

    I think that it might not work for him( Ontario Canada ) it might be colder outside than in the freezer.

    Put the pump in the freezer for about an hour. The wear ring will practically fall out.
