    Need Help: Replacing Wear Ring on 97 GTX

    Guys what is the process for replacing a wear ring on a 97 GTX. Looks like the wear ring is lipped on both sides. How do you get this thing out and put a new one in?

    you just about have to cut out the old one, be careful not to cut into the pump. put the new one in the freezer for a while first, use a block of wood and a BFH or a press to install it. both sides are not the same, pump side has a squared edge.

    Put the hole pump in the freezer. A great tip I learned from this forum! Use a blunt screwdriver or punch to hit the wear ring. Alternate hits, trying to keep the ring straight as you knock it out. Hope this helps.
