I am trying to replace an old GE sink dispoesr with a new In-Sink Erator model (555).

I was having difficulty trying to get the sink flange separated from the support ring (with 3 screws on the underside of the sink).

It seems to have a lip which is locking the sink flange in place. Do I need special tools to get this apart? Any thoughts?

(I would have left the old sink flange assembly in place but the new disposer unit will not fit to the existing s/f assembly...)

I believe there is a metal ring that holds it in place. When you have located it, you can easily pry it off with a screwdriver.
Look at the new one and the instructions that come with it for more info.
