Replacing Tweco gun liner?

I was just tacking an exhaust back togther, and my gun jammed up. I pulled the tip out, and the liner seemed to fit sloppy in the hose. My welder uses Tweco parts. I use .023 Mig wire. I'v found the liners, but I'v never done it before. What is involved? Owners manual doesn't cover it except saying it uses Tweco parts.. I got it working again, but I know it's going to need fixed again/ New liner.

Liners are ez to replace. On some Tweco models, there is a small set screw that holds the liner in the diffuser. The most important thing is cutting the liner to the correct length.
