Well it's done....swapped out the wear ring... that guide helped though the pump bolts are 9/16 not 1/2 and I had one issue when putting on the iBR
I cleaned out all of the bores with a tap and ran the bolts through a thread chased to clean all of the yellow thread locker off. I applied blue thread locker and bolted everything in, however the right side bolt that the iBR bucket pivots on Wil not torque down.... I am betting the threads stripped out which is pretty tucked up since its only been disassembled once and was properly cleaned out prior to reinstalling. I don't think that bolt is going anywhere for the time being and I don't feel like taking it apart again right now so we will see... ****, if it falls off maybe that will be warranty, otherwise I'll helicoil it if I can just retap it.
I did find the culprit inside the pump housing....a rock the size of a quarter, so I am going to blame that.
