    Over winter the 12v dc motor that goes to the pump on my dump truck box went out. It is an older unit on a 1989 GMC V3500. I was trying to remove it so I can get it rebuilt but it won't come off the pump! I can get it to spin from three oclock to nine oclock but it won't come off the pump to the rear. Is there a roll pin in there or something?? I have all the bolts a screws off that I can see.
    Any tips would be appreciated!!

    The two long bolts need to come out that hold the end cap on. then you may need to tap it a bit with a brass hammer. If its been there a long time it may be a bit rusted.

    Thanks Herm,

    I got it off on about two minutes. I was looking way to deep into the removal of it, it can't get much simpler than it was.
