    There was a post on here somewhere that said that it sounded like there was rocks and gravel inside of the pump when he was using it. I cant find that post but i would like to read up on some possible causes for that wicked sound comming from the pump. Im hoping that someones 2nd opinion would delete My 1st opinion about what is happening here! Thanks guys.

    I would guess a bad motor. Pull the motor and check the brushes.

    Sounds like mine, it probably has water in it and is frozen.

    Im not sure what the hell it is..... maybe low fluid.... i have a slow leak in the line so i wonder if it could be that.

    I had the same problem with my e-47. I got a seal kit today and replaced the major ones, for know. I flushed the interior of the housing and cleaned it up. I replaced the filters and replaced with fresh fluid and it works awesome. I will tear it all down this summer, when i have more time.:redbouncepurplebou
