    I have a E-47 unit and the pump shaft seal doesn't work! It is a brand new seal but sometiimes it pops up right when the motor starts and the fluid comes running right out. Could i have it in upside down? Could the fluid be coming up through somewhere else? please help!!!! Thank you!!!!

    the part # is 15581 it is a official meyer replacement made by meyer. I think there could be something wrong with the pump relief valve or the other valves. I think its building the pressure but sending it back to the motor instead of the cylinder. which just blows that seal right up out of its home. and ideas? Any help is appreciated.

    I have a back up pump that goes left, right, and up just fine but when it goes down it leaks from the top seal? How to you adjust the pressure or check it? Thanks

    It will go down but any function requiring the motor to run it pops the seal out. I think the bushings are bad that are around the gear shafts and fluid is getting past them and going to the seal and popping it out. I need to find the bushings now and replace them and see what happens. Why is there a port to the bushing anyway? Could i weld it up so the pressure doesn't get to the seal except around the shaft?
