    OK, So I was putting a new resevior to pump seal in and cleaning everything out. somehow I forgot to take the breather cap on top of the resevior back off.It was kinda hard to get the resevior off so I did not think much abut it. I bent the circular plate that the pickup tubes go through. Do I need to get a new one or can I just bend it back by hand? Does not really seem to create any typ of seal just helps support the pickup tubes I guess? I really want to get this back together and done.

    Thoughts?

    Reason I ask is the plate is not even shown on the parts diagram I found.

    Simply straighten it back out. Not a big deal. You won't forget the next time. :D

    Most rams need a little persuasion so a soft blow hammer or a wooden block and a hammer are usually needed.
