I drained the sump and cleaned the filter prior to pulling the pump out, yet when I removed the pump and used an eye dropper to remove the fuel in the sump it picked up other trash and a little water out of the sump. Is it possible you could beat any edges that have turned out back down and have your old ring welded and keep it for a spare? The place I took mine to have it welded is just a small family owned business, they charged me $10. to weld it and grind it. I figure if it extends the life of the ring by 2+ years it will be money well spent.

    Looked like stainless. In my town of 400, we are lucky enuf to have a master welder. But that $10 price makes me jealous! I have two or three rings that look like they could be welded. hell, if I could have all three done for $50 or $60 I would be happy. Will talk to him in the next few days and see what he thinks. If I get them welded, I will post pictures and make a new thread.

    @ctbale, I wish you luck in getting them welded at a good price. Mine hasn't created any problems and has now been in service for between 1-2 weeks. Before I moved to KY I lived in NC. There was an older man that was a farmer and had a little welding shop, he was probably in his late 70's. I don't think he ever charged me more than $5. for any small job he did for me. I remember a couple times him asking me if $2. was too much.

    $2 ... Thats awesome!

    I will show this guy 3 rings and see what he says. And I might just "forget" to tell him for me to get 3 rings new would be about $270 !!!

    I think I'd forget to tell him that. Say something like if it doesn't cost too much I'll just have these old ones rewelded and use them instead of buying new ones. He doesn't have to know if they are welded all the way around they will probably last longer than a new one. When I rebuilt the chamber in my 422 in 2012 a new ring cost me $55. so they've gone up about $35 in the last 7 years. This is the ring that I just had welded. Pretty ridiculous price for $. 50 worth of sheet metal and 5 minutes worth of welding.
