    S.s wear ring help

    I everyone I'm changing my 159 pump to a 161 and I need to remove the wear ring. It's stainless steel, I've left the pump outside in the snow for a few days then put a torch to the pump with no luck. Since then I gave up but I want to get this done any help would be great thanks

    Get a short piece of 4x4 lumber, drill a hole in one end so the thread portion where the impeller goes fits in it. Hold the pump ontop of the 4x4 and hit the whole thing onto garage floor. It will slowly slide out little by little with every hit.

    Just make sure the lumber isn't touching the pump internal components, it should rest on the pump body only.

    So you want to salvage wear ring? If not then run a bead of weld on inner surface. Do this in 3!equally spaced places and it will shrink the wear ring and make it easier to get out

    Yeah I'm trying to keep it in case I don't see any gains with the 161 I can go back to the 159 set up
