I'm not sure. The motor is slowly coming back together. Hopefully I will have it running by the 15th and I will let you know!

Nice work Elliot!

FYI, I detailed my PS pump rebuild in my 60 series PS on a 40 thread: http://forum.ih8mud.com/co-wy-horset...ir-pump-2.html

Starts at post #45

In hindsight, this would be great content for the Trails. Mark W already wrote up doing the 60 series PS conversion for a 40, so I had no concerns there, but the PS pump rebuild would have been good content to write up for TT.

Also, I think a reason these pumps leak is the bronze bushing in the front gets worn from belt tension. I found a replacement bushing, but I could not get the old bushing pressed out of the pump I was rebuilding...

I hope your pump works well!

One significant tip I'd add to the instructions is to measure the difference in length of the rotor and the pump housing. This is the heigth of the step between the rotor and housing shown in the 8th picture. If the step is too big (manual says something like 0.003") then the pump won't develop enough pressure. I had a non leaking pump that had 0.025" clearance and wasn't rebuildable due to wear.
