yeah thats pretty much true but you could save a hundred bucks and put it on your self as well its not very hard at all
You do not need to remove the pulley on the ITW or Thompson pumps it you're changing the reservior seal or rear output seal where the high pressure hose connects.There are three places for a Thompson pump ('67 to ?) to leak. The front seal, the canister or reservoir seal, and the rear/output gasket/seal. To do any work on theses, you will need to remove the pulley, before removing the pump from the mount. The reservoir and rear/outlet seals are easily replaced after popping off the canister/reservoir. Reassemble after cleaning and lightly lubing.
The front or shaft seal will require disassembly of the pump itself. Unless you're pretty confident of your abilities with pumps, I wouldn't tackle it. I'm a former AF Hydraulic tech, I didn't disassemble mine; because the instructions weren't complete enough. If it's leaking out the fron, get a reman pump.
Yes.Thanks for the replies guys... on my pump I noticed RFMG stamped on it in yellow print so although it looks original I am now assuming that its remanufactured?
