    why would you change the shaft in the first place?

    Wear ring is easy. Shaft is a little more involved but it can be done at home. There is a thread somewhere describing putting the shaft bearings in the freezer for a day so the slide into the stator housing easier.

    The end of the shaft tines are damaged.

    I have a used shaft connected to the pump and good wear ring, which is complete. Can I just bolt it up or should I replace the coupler and intermediate shaft as well?
