    Anybody ever seal the motor where it meets the pump with a bead of silicone? I have replaced the motor twice now, each time it has been filled with that baking soda from oxidation. I have heard that is the weak point in the design hence the new rubber covers.

    Any thoughts?

    I have had that issue as well. I dont see why it wouldnt work. Or even just out on the outside seam, to really keep the water out. I may do this to mine. Those rubber boots for the pumps are a bear to deal with when you have to make a field repair at 3 am or hooking the hydro lines up. I took mine off when I had my other truck with a new meyer on it

    I bet a bead of Dielectric grease pressed into the gap would work too. Then it would come apart easier. No battle with the caulking gun around all the obstacles.
