    Take a dremel, or similar tool and cut slots in it (big enough for a big flathead screwdriver) around the top edge. Take your screwdriver and start prying it up in the slots you cut. Once you get it out a ways you can flip the pump over and use a long object from the back to knock it out.

    Thanks to Franko for this tip

    If you don't want to hack it up, this is what I did to remove my S/S when mine was stuck. Worth a shot. Check out the 3rd to the last thread.

    Red, I forgot about that thread when I needed to remove mine last weekend So I had to figure it out on my own. The thinking definitely took longer than the working

    One tip: when you tap the back of the wear ring with wear ring facing the ground, watch your feet. That SS wear ring hurts like shit when it falls on the top of your foot.

    No good luck on pulling that aluminum ring out,so I'll bring it to work and get it done with some cutting tools we have.I think I'll get some rings made out of plastic next.Any good info on what plastic to use?I was thinking pvc pipe.
