    Wear ring removal

    I found a great way to take out your old wear ring with-out the chance of damage to your pump. If someone already discovered this method and posted it I apologize for being redundant.

    Buy a cheap pencil type soldering iron
    Melt two lines across the wear ring about an inch and a half apart, melt it all the way down to the metal.
    Take plyers and snap the inch and half piece out, the ring will almost fall out now. No scratched up pump from a saw or dremil.

    THIS SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD METHOD, I JUST GRABBED ONTO IT WITH VICE GRIPS ON EACH SIDE, AND WORKED IT OUT, VERY HARD. BUT I WILL KEEP THIS IN MIND FOR THE NEXT TIME.

    Put the pump in the freezer for an hour or two and the ring (plastic not stainless) will usualy fall out.

    That works excellent for putting a new plastic wear ring in, but not for taking it out. ( well it didn't for me)

    I use a small propane torch and a flat screwdriver. Takes about 10 seconds to remove.

    Always works good for me, taking out or putting in. you may need to freeze it a bit longer.

    How often should the wear ring be removed? How do you know when it needs to replaced just looking at it?
