    Stainless wear ring?

    Does anybody know how to remove a Stainless wear ring? I looked in the how to section and did not see anything. The freezer method does not seem to work for stainless. Thanks in advance.

    Remove the rubber seal from the lip on the pump.

    Get some big vice grips and clamp them on the edge of the wear ring. Use a big flathead screwdriver and pry between the vice grips and the pump. This will get it started.

    Work the vice grips around the wear ring and keep prying. Once you get it far enough you can reach in behind it with a long screw driver and smack it with a hammer.

    Since Aluminum has a greater expansion coefictiont it would make more senses to bake the assymbly in the oven (not mom's) at about 300 degrees for an hour or so - it should come out easier. Or maybe a little map gas torch - watch the oil / grease in the tail cone (Remove cone and clean out residuals)

    Watch out, you don't want to melt those grease seals... Ron
