    Very good info.

    FYI, No need to remove prop as most times the wear ring will come out after the whole pump sits 45min in the freezer. Pop old ring and replace with the new one.

    Easiest method ever...I've left mine in the freezer as little as 25 mins and it worked like a charm!

    I just tried replacing the OEM wear ring with another OEM wear ring, it was easy enough to get the old wear ring out with freezer trick but I can't get new OEM wear ring in. The inner diameter of the fresh OEM wear ring was binding on the impeller.

    Lube the inside with WD-40 and slightly spin prop and push ring and it will go.

    NO, Not always! Billy, sometimes the SS ring needs a little more help than the plastic rings. With the SS ring just place the Ring in the freezer and leave the pump out. It may install with prop still in pump, but you might have to take it out and use a little press or a rubber mallet.
