Hydraulic pump

Post by MULLEY » Mon Nov 13, 2006 7:40 pm

Seems the TZD hadnt got an oil leak, its the pump pissing out fluid. Can they be fixed? or is a replacement the only solution?

If its a replacement, i dont fancy paying £270 for one, has anyone got a spare one for sensible money? i dont mind if its a 2nd hand one.

Thanks

p.s. can anything else go wrong on this bugger!!!!!!

I've rebuilt a CX pump. Cant see it being too much different to do a BX pump, have to say though whilst I can buy new I never thought about it before.. I've got a knackered HP diesel pump floating around in the back garden somewhere, if I come across it I'll take it to pieces and see if I can get a rebuild kit?

Mulley - basics first - where is the pump leaking from? They are actually sealed which is why reconditioning is difficult but this means that there are few places it can leak from.

If its from behind the pulley - you've got a problem, but if its elsewhere - it can really only be the outlet pipe seal on the inlet stub pipe which is unlikely.

Have a good look at it and establish where the LHM is coming from - if indeed it is the pump at all.

Leakage is not the normal pump failure - they usually go feeble.

Cheers for that info Jeremy, it was garage that said it was leaking, so will ask them to clarify whereabouts its leaking from....
