    yea me neither.... the thru-hull seal and accordian boot should support it enough. I've left mine dangling for days or even week or two at a time... never had a problem yet.

    I don't know why but I just got in the habit of supporting the shaft from the first time I took my pump off. Now it is just second nature to support it whether it needs it or not.

    It does hang down quite a bit, and you can move it around, which I don`t really know if that is good for it, but one thing is that sucker should slide right back in without sticking my hand in there. I didn`t think it was a good idea to stress whatever is on the other side, carbon seal/ring, accord boot etc., anyways it can`t hurt being supported!...PR...

    Hey PR, did you ever try the freezer trick for wear ring removal / replacement? Works very well and no danger of damaging the pump.

    I wanted to try the "Shibbzero" method, but I saw all this glue spooging out around the wear ring, and decided to cut it. I didn`t think the first people to RR wear ring cut to deep, but at least it`s not dammaged to where I can not install the SS wear ring...PR...

    "Shibzero method"- too funny! I don't know if it works with the SS ring, but the plastic ring just drops right in using that trick. Vic
