    try to stick the whole wear ring assy into the freezer... once it gets cold the plastic will shrink more than the aluminum and it should come out... same with the replacement... let the aluminum housing come up to room temp and freeze the replacement ring and it should slide in (with a little help from a hammer and block of wood)

    Thank You. The freezer method worked.
