    Should I replace this?

    This is the support ring for the driveshaft that the carbon ring pushes against. My driveshaft had a little rust on it, so I had to beat this piece with a hammer to get it to loosen up so I could remove the driveshaft. Of course I didn't use a rubber mallet like I should have, so now I'm left with the piece with some dents in it . Will this cause any problems or will it be fine to put back in? Also do I really need to replace to the accordian boot when I change the carbon ring? It appears to be in good and it has about 78 hours on it. Just curious. Thanks
