    SS wear rings

    I am going to install SS wear rings in both skis. the RXP and T-X.
    I have read the directions about how to and have this quetion. Is there any different instructions to installing the SS wear ring compared to the plastic stock wear ring. Just wanted to get heads up before the swap. thanks.
    I suppose the freezer method does not work on the SS ring going into pump or coming out.

    I don't see why not? Just throw the ring in the freezer for awhile and let the pump sit out in the sun for while to heat up. Should go in a little easier. Tap around it evenly with a rubber mallet if necessary.

    skoeppy, let me help ya out, Brother . Empty your freezer and put everything in a cooler. put dry ice in it and duct tape it shut. Remember, everything means all the steak and lobster tail in your freezer. shipped it to Santa Barbara and I'll hold it for ya while you put the SS ring in the freezer and do your thang try not to lick the SS ring after ya freeze it, like somebody I know

    I've had mine in for about 1 1/2 yrs and still looks like new, can't imagine having to get it out.

    I put my ss wear ring in a couple of weeks back. The wear ring was in the freezer for 24 hrs but I did'nt heat up the pump. HUGE mistake. I was really sweating it that it was'nt going to go all the way in. A 3lb. sledge and two pieces of 2x4 later it finally seated all the way. If I had it to do over I would REALLY warm up the pump, and use some ky lube. Um, ky on the pump

    So how do you remove the SS wear ring ? If the pump extensions become available it would be nice to be able to remove it.
