    Removing Wear Ring

    So i have the pump out with the wear ring still inside, really scratched up and i saw light when prop was installed...

    so from what i read i just put the pump in the freezer and when i take out i should just be able to pull the wear ring out...

    How long does it need to be in the freezer?

    should the new wear ring also be put in the freezer before install?

    Groovy is right, an hour should do it.

    BUT... if it is still stubborn, leave it in overnight and then wack the edge of the wear ring in several places with a rubber mallet (or plastic handle of a large Craftsman screwdriver)... that should free it up.
