    Very easy job. Pull the pump and put it in the freezer for a bit and it will slide right out. Put the new one in and let it sit in the sun for a bit.

    I just did mine 30 minutes ago. Here's what worked for me:

    1. Put pump with OLD wear ring in freezer for about an hour.
    2. Place NEW wear ring in freezer at the same time.
    3. After 1 hour, place pump in a vise.
    4. Old wear ring should pull out by hand.
    5. Let the pump warm back up to room temperature.
    6. Pull NEW wear ring from freezer, it should fit snug in pump, place 2x4 on top and hammer home.
    7. Go have a beer.

    Yes freeze the whole pump, pull the old one out of the pump, grab the new one out of the freezer so its still good and cold and beat it in there with a block of wood and a hammer or mallet

    I cut mine out and beat the other one in. Done in 5 minutes. No freezing for me. Don't have the time for it.

    yes. I just installed mine this morning after leaving it in the freezer overnight. Although still very easy to do, the new gray one was a harder to get in than the old white ones were. I actually took a 2x4 and some big C clamps and pressed it in that way. Worked great!
