I picked up this rebuild kit off ebay. I've never rebuilt one before but it seems pretty easy on the surface. Just put the parts back in the same way you got them out, right? Thing is, there seems to be an aluminum ring that holds the teflon ring in place. I was able to hook the old ring and drag it out, but that aluminum ring is still in place. Short of getting pretty medieval on this thing, I don't see how it's coming out. Maybe I can cut or deform it enough that I can rip the old one out- pushing the new one in I could see being feasible with a cylinder and press or clamp- still it seems way harder than it should be. This could just be a snap ring or something. Can somebody offer some advice on this task?
