Default Done!

Daniel and I got the pump rebuilt last night: 1.5hrs + 4 beers + pleasant conversation... very rewarding to have it done.

The kit from Rock Auto included all seals except for one: the little one that goes around the banjo bolt was not in the kit. I'll need to go to NAPA to find a replacement for it, plus the return hoses and I'll be ready for re-assembly.

Thanks very much Daniel - appreciate your help.

Great to meet you James and pay it forward. Glad we got you rebuilt and hope we inspire others. Its really quite easy, even if a few vanes fall out. Wear side faces clockwise and is farther from the center. Amazing how little wear there is after so many miles.

I've successfully completed the re-assembly following the rebuild. It was all well for a while but now I have another LEAK! Not on the pump this time - the bloody leak starts right where the supply hose leaves the bottom of the reservoir and feeds fluid down to the top of the pump. I can't tell if it's right at the host or above - could it be that I have a crack in the fluid reservoir?!

Seeing a puddle forming again under my cruiser brings tears to my eyes.. .

Is it a new hose? Unlikely to be the reservoir but I have a spare.

Daniel - it's a brand new Gates hose and a brand new clamp... If you have a spare I'll buy it off of ya. BTW - I may be in the are tonight or tomorrow, so I could pop over and return the wrench too.

Another thing: is it likely that I may need a constant-tension clamp on there, since it gets hot/cold/hot in there?

Did you just order the high pressure hose for an 80 series from Napa? Or was it a different hose that was a similar fit?

I took Roobie's advice and bought the one from Napa...I looked it up online and took the printout with the part # into the Napa on County Line and Holly. They had one in stock
