    Hey gang! Have an E47 setup that I bought used a few years back. Only do friend/family plowing. Anyway pump started leaking out weep hole two years ago so being a used rig, I replaced it. Getting everything ready for the coming winter, I noticed the "new" pump is now leaking as well. Went to the dealer, and of course they want me to buy the whole pump. Would like to rebuild (as I now have two to work with). Anyway, found a parts breakdown, and it shows a shaft seal (p.n. 155-0876). Will this do the trick, or does anybody know of a "kit" available. Thanks in advance!

    Pump Rebuild

    Go to Angelos-supplies.com.

    Thet have a rebuild kit for $13.50.

    If your going to rebuild part of the pump, you might as well do the whole pump.

    Since you have 2 pumps, Do what I did when I learned to do a rebuild.
    Tear 1 Pump apart completely. Make sure you pay attention to what peices went where. Take each o-ring off the old parts and match it to one in the kit. Replace all o-rings, seals, etc., 1 at a time. If you get stuck, disassemble the part in question on the 2nd pump to find out how it goes together.

    Shouldn't take more that an hour or 2 to do the whole job.

    Meyers Web site also has instructions for this that you can download for free.

    Make sure you lube all rings and seals w/ fluid before putting them on.

    Flush the pump and tourque all fasteners to proper specs.

    While you got everything apart, check your brushes. I always replace if they are worn past 75%.

    Make sure you have all the tools you need before you start.

    Thanks for the advice. I found Angelos after posting, but didn't see the rebuild kit. Asked the local dealer, and they said the tolerances were too tight to do myself, and suggested the $230 pump. I figured that between the two pumps I ought to be able to do something. Again, THANKS! I'll be ordering the new kit in the morning.

    You should find this to be a relatively easy rebuild. Once you've done it, you will want to find a new dealer! Your tolerance for him may tighten up a bit.
