    Can the average Joe do a rebuild on the E-57 pump? Or is it a PITA

    They are not hard to rebuild, just have to pay close attention to where everything goes. Hardest part I feel to put back together is the crossover valve. The other issue is I am guessing you dont have a test stand. So you will need to rig up a gauge to set the pressure after you rebuild. E57 is basically a E47 with a bigger motor. You can get the repair manuals from Meyers sight.

    Definitely doable by the average handyman...try the Smith Brother's site (link below) for incredible knowledge on these units. Much better than Meyer's manual. Also, you don't necessarily need to take the entire thing apart to "rebuild" (such as crossover as mentioned above). Usually the problem of a non-functioning unit will become evident very quickly once you develop an understanding of how the unit works. and just taking the tank/ram off 3 main valves out and letting drain upside down for a while will get out the bad fluid.
