    throw the pump in the freezer for a few hours. Then usual a hair dryer or carefull using a heat gun heat up the outside of the pump. this will expand the outside of the pump while the wear ring is remains smaller.

    I tried the freezer trick + torch... Mine would not budge. Hope you have better results.

    I would give Glen @ Skat-Trak a call and ask him, if anyone would know it would be him. He's a great guy.

    freezing it is the wrong approach. bake it for a while. let the aluminum expand and loosen its grip on the ss. freezing makes the metals contract and makes the fit tighter this is all assuming that galvanic corrosion has not set in between the dissimilar metals, and that the press fit tolerance is within the range of aluminum's thermal expansion.

    now for a plastic wear ring, 1 hour in the freezer and it just falls out
