    Metal Pump Upgrade Questions

    I have all the parts to do this upgrade now and I was wondering if anyone who had already done the upgrade could give me some tips before I get started. I do have a couple specific questions:

    1) Any tips on the specific assembly sequence (seal and bearing side)?

    2) I don't have a press right now, is there any problem with installing the bearing with a dead blow hammer on the outer race?

    Any other assembly advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm pretty sure that you should apply pressure to the inner race only. Maybe use a deep well socket or length of pipe and strike that. But I would not strike the outer race... Ron

    Sorry, no. PPG assembled the metal pump when it was replaced under warranty, and shipped it back ready to go.
