    The newer style rings are thinner and more flexible...it took me two tries to freeze the ring/heat the pump with a heat gun. I just put as square as I could and put a 2/4 on the top and started wacking with mallet. Getting it started is tougher for sure than the old rings. Far as I know the pump is identical except for the new ring and some internals inside....should fit.

    All done. With it in the freezer all night it was much easier. Heated pump just a bit longer and pressed it wright in with press. I will add it is harder to start the initial install over previous rings. Thanks guys for heads up as i was a little frustrated. The 2013 rxtx pump conversion is done. 13/16r pitched and balanced by Dave at Impros. He did infact have to balance it. So what hell Solas?
