    Stainless Wear Ring ??

    Bought a wear ring through the online store to go in a 2002 gtx 4-tec. I put the ring in the freezer and pump in the sun for a while. Dropped wear ring in the pump and thought to my self that was pretty easy.

    Heres the problem
    After the ring come back to room temp its not tight at all. You can slide it in and out with no problems.

    What did I do wrong or whats the fix??

    Is it a plastic pump? - You may need to drill and tap a couple of stainless bolts to hold it in place - like 10-32 machine screws

    How does the impeller fit inside the stainless ring?

    yes plastic pump. The prop fits good with just a little clearance

    Drill and tap three machine screws to hold it in place - Just drill thru the liner and tap it. Insert the crews from the ouside and grind the screws flush. You could also glue it in place with some rtv or the right stuff instead.

    The older pumps usually had screws holding the wear ring in.
