    I tried to "bench test" my pump before I put it on the truck because I know it sat for a while, so i hooked up all the wires to a battery and turned it on, the lights on the touchpad turn on but the pump just makes a clicking noise, and dosent move, what could this mean?

    Bad ground or a bad connection/corrosion would be the first things Id look at. Are you using a pigtail multi wire connector to hook up the pump to power/ground/solenoids?

    Look within that connection.

    Those things are problematic at best in my opinion and corrosion pigs.

    I hooked the power directly to the motor and nothing happened.

    I would look for a bad ground. 1 terminal motors are common for having corrosion problems between the motor and pump base. Clean any corrosion and do not use dielectric grease as it is an insulator.

    The grounds are very sensitive and what may look like a good ground may not be.

    Try putting your ground wire directly on the motor housing and see if it works.If the motor still wont run,remove the two screw's from the end of the motor and pull the cover plate off and check inside the motor and around the brushes for corrosion. Common thing on the single stud motor's after setting for a while.

    Hey thanks for the complement
    How am I ignoring you? I have alot going on if I didnt answer something just ask again sorry


    And those are all good ideas I agree take the motor off and see if you can get it to run off the pump and start from there. After you clean out the cap real good we allways use anti seeze in there to cut down on corrosion

    Ha! Even better. I know it's not but a few hours from GR so I figured it would be easy for you but thats even better that you dont even have to touch it.

    You should turn at Cabellas on 23....M-50 I believe it is and go that way west and hook up with 69 or 94 past Irish Hills if you are going to GR Jeen.

    Mores scenic and a quicker route.

    It is M-50....west to Tecumseh, and keep going. It will take you right past Michigan International Speedway to I94, or you could turn left at the speedway on US 12 and go west to 127 north to 94 in Jackson

    If you stayed on us 12 it goes to coldwater and 69 is right there but us12 goes southwest and would extend the drive.

    if this ever takes off in the future jeen which I intend it to do, I will need several things but not right now.

    Like a spare E60, and a spare touchpad controller.

    I am going to install some of the greaseable pivot pins this summer. I'll give you a shout on those when I do if you stock them.

    I may even try to install my own zirks on the ones I have now but I dont even think thats possible without taking them all apart anyhow and if I did that I'd just install factory pieces and do it that a way.

    Yea we stock all that
    I will look into those directions
    I went to Bible College in Jackson for 2 years so I am familiar with that way but we allways take 23 to 96 for Grand Rapids
