    Stainless steel wear ring fitting

    Hi
    Is there any tips out there on installing a stainless steel
    Wear ring to my 2005 Rxp Pump
    Or is it the same as fitting a plastic one
    Should I use antiseeze and the freezer technique
    And is there anything I need to do to the impeller
    When fitting that back in it's a solas Srx cd 14/19
    Cheers steve

    Also is there anything else that needs modding when adding a SS ring instead of the plastic one

    You can use only heat to the pump so it will be easier to put the ring in!Thats the way I do it!
