    Cool Wear ring won't go in.

    I’m having trouble getting my new wear ring in. The old one came out real easy, only had it in the freezer for about an hour, and if fell out.
    This new one I tied 1 hour, 4 hours, over night, and now its still in the freezer till I get home, and other tricks to get this thing in?
    FYI the pump is not in the freezer, just the new wear ring.
    Edit: Its the plastic white one.

    I believe the new wear rings are different and they do fit tighter than the older ones. ! hour in freezer should be enough. I used a rubber mallet to tap mine in but it was a tighter fit than the last one I did. Make sure you tap it in evenly though.

    Put the wear ring in the freezer for a couple of hours and let the pump sit in the sun for the same. It should go in with no problems then....

    Why would you put the pump in the freezer? That would cause a tighter fit between the ring and the pump housing! Put the ring in the freezer for a couple of hours and right before your ready, heat the pump housing with a heat gun or blow drier. Then take a short 2x4 and 2-4lb mallet and beat it in evenly. The new plastic rings are a little harder and a tighter fit which controls the clearance a little better which translates into a longer lasting ring. Don't heat or chill the pump housing too much because when it normalizes, it causes a condensation around the pump bearings. Hope this helps.
