    Changing wear ring on a 2000 GTX

    What is the procedure for changing out the wear ring on a 2000 GTX? I have done them on the 4-tec skis before.

    Does the prop come off the same way and where can I get the tool to do it?

    Thanks guys

    Funny you should post as I am dooing one right now. This year pump comes off just like the others pretty much. It has the 2 small screws in the pump wall to stop the ring from spinning. I just throw the entire pump in the freezer and wait about an hour with the new ring in the freezer as well and slid them in and out... I didn't take the prop out of this one. Depends on if it is stubborn or not I guess.
    Good luck

    actualy it should have 4 screws securing it to the housing. 2 under the bailer tubes and 2 more on the other side. If you cant get it out by freezing it and wiggleing the wearing out you will need to pull the impellor and cut the ring . I use a sawzall and make 2 slices about an inch apart and then just remove the the wear ring. just freeze the new wearing and slide it in and finsh up with a 2x4 and a mallet or press. Then drill holes for the screws and install the screws and impellor. Use new pump oil and oring. before you put in the oil make sure the pump turns freely a little rubbing of the wer ring is ok. If it doesnt turn freely after putting on the cone you may have the trust bearing out of place or the anti rattle device missinstalled.

    What tool do I need to get the prop off the ski? I doubt it uses the same tool as the 4-tecs.
