    what is the best way to flush or clean out a e60 pump? I replaced A coil and cleaned my filters and found it in need of a cleaning.Thanks for any input.

    I flushed my Fisher SHEP pump earlier tonight and I thought it was pretty easy. I went to raise the plow when I out it on my truck and it made this horrible noise and the lift arm was barely moving up. It took me about 30 mins to drain the pump, angle cylinders, refill and bleed everything.

    I clamp my pump into the vise put a oil drain pan under the drain plug hole and start pouring Naptha through it. If it comes out dirty, I strain the dirty Naptha through a terry cloth filter and keep flushing. If it does not start coming out clean after a few tries I take the resevour cap off and clean the sump out, along with the pump strainer. One final fush with fresh Naptha and put back together..
