    Try sticking the whole pump shoe in the Freezer. If it wont budge I would try freezing it then heating the shoe slightly with a propane torch. Work very quickly, hopefully the ring will stay cold enough (contracted) while you heat the shoe a little which will expand it, and hopefully allow the two to seperate.

    Or if its new, leave it in!!!!

    Put it in the OVEN!!! Heat to about 120 deg, take out and put the spline on a bit of wood and give the housing a knock with a hammer!!!!!

    never though this task would be so easy. had the pump in the freezer (few hours) under heat gun for about 10 min. ( tilll outside is warm to the touch, not hot, and inside ring is stil cool).

    2ft section of 3 inch sch 40 pvc pipe.. held the pvc pipe and pump together... 2 hard taps on the ground with the pvc pipe and out she popped like a dream!

    once the pump was frozen this process took 11 min.. 10 to heat 1 to remove wear ring, simple and successful! and im no pro!
