I just rebuilt my Sherwood M-5 pump. I broke the 'ceramic' (read carbon) sleeve. After cooking a steak I threw it on the BBQ on high while I ate supper, and pressed it in with a soft piece of wood and a plastic hammer. It is a tolerance fitting so it needs to be heated.

Now don't put in the seals until it is cool to touch.
