Stretch them around the shaft then size them with a tool that is made to the bore of the pump stator tube.

How do you mean size them? If I put the shaft in the freezer and warm up the seals, then install the seals will they conform to the size of the input shaft?
Thanks

What shaft is it that you need to install one piece rings? If its conventional just get a different set of rings or cut yours. When I say "size" , I mean shrink them back down to the bore size. Teflon is stupid and has NO memory so if its stretched it just stays that way.

use a long socket to hold the teflon ring on... then with a sharp x-zacko knife, cut the ring at angle to scarf cut them. Longer scarf cut the better. Check for fitment and you may need to size them as with 1 piece use
