Replacing the entire pump for a broken / leaky seal is a bit overkill - kinda like being advised to replace an engine when its your oil filter seal leaking. Poolcenter.com sells a Polaris "Go Kit" consisting of the three primary o-rings/seals that need periodic replacement as they dry-out and crack, promoting leaks, during non-operating months. Its called the Go-Kit 71 (for about $15.00) plus shipping. Replacement is fairly straight-forward if you know how to disassemble the pump - not rocket science but definately engineering.

Oil leak on a '92 Geo Tracker. Installed an O Ring, but still leaking. Any suggestions?


O-ring where? The drain plug? Distributor shaft? Or do you mean oil seal?
Geo oil drain plug specifies a compressible copper ring washer I think? Need to clean the surfaces well, and torque to spec. My own plug's seal is not perfect, but only a drop here and there usually. Autozone or NAPA can supply you a new plug and washer if needed.

I have a 953 track loader the throttle shaft on the injector pump is leaking oil do i have to replace the injector pump


Bad O-ring on shaft. You may be able to do it yourself, but definitely not a complete pump unless you have a cracked pump or serious injection performance problems thus bad engine performance. Double check pump shaft. area. may need to remove a cover to the drive. Usually, there is a diesel return line I suppose there is a slim chance that is pinched or plugged somehow. Check to make sure it's clear. Possible that supply line to Injunction pump is leaking at the connection, also usually a bad O-ring. Find a leak by
wraping a paper towel in places to discover the leak. Or there is
a black light kit with dye to discover leaks.

MY WL651500AJ IRON FORCE WONT PUMP UP MORE THAN 30PSI IN ABOUT 15 MIN.


First check for leaks: the tank drain valve may not be closed or has something in it causing it to stick open. Check the line from the pump to the tank and the line from the tank check valve to the pressure switch if it has one.
If there are no leaks you have either a damaged piston/cylinder assembly, usually the seal ring on top of the piston or bent or broken reed valves. You just have to remove the head and valve plate to check the condition of the cylinder and valve plate.

Karcher4.600 leaking


The pump on this unit almost certainly has damaged valves. The literature says its a "maintenance-free" pump; read, "no parts available - disposable pump".

So--the leak at the outlet is most likely a worn o-ring and easily fixable. Most places that sell home-owner class pressure washers sell the o-rings for those couplings (they are not Karcher specific). And then shop around for a pump. Ebay, or online Karcher dealers or if there is local Karcher dealer.... The point being is you may find a lot of variability in price.

There is nothing technical at all about replacing the pump. It will be bolted to the motor, usually with 4 bolts, and it just slides right off/on the motor shaft. The hardest part will be removing the plumbing from the old pump and putting it on the new pump. I wouldn't be surprized if the new pump came with new in/out plumbing. Look into that before chasing an 0-ring for the leaking coupler. You may wind up with a new coupling anyway.

I hope this is helpful, and that you'll take a second to rate me if it is.

Installed new impeller, seal, o ring and square o ring in Jacuzzi Magnum 2 hp. After putting it all back together it leaks alot from around the housing. The o ring is new, and I have tightened as tight as...


the o ring usually would not fit if it were the wrong size. What seals is a ceramic seal, did you change that? If run without water, the ceramic seal will be damaged....

Is there an easier way to replace the fuel pump other than dropping the tank?


No, the fuel tank must be dropped if there is no access door (which there usually isn't for safety reasons).


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION NOTE: To gain access to the fuel pump, it is necessary to remove the fuel tank.
  1. Depressurize the fuel system and remove the fuel tank from the vehicle.
  2. Remove any dirt that has accumulated around the fuel pump attaching flange, to prevent it from entering the tank during service.
  3. Turn the fuel pump locking ring counterclockwise using a locking ring removal tool and remove the locking ring.
  4. Remove the fuel pump and bracket assembly.
  5. Remove the seal gasket and discard it. To install:
  6. Put a light coating of heavy grease on a new seal ring to hold it in place during assembly. Install it in fuel tank ring groove. Fig. 1: Fuel pump and sending unit used on the Regular Cab Ranger pick-up 89685g02.gif
    Fig. 2: Fuel pump and sending unit used on the Super Cab Ranger pick-up 89685g03.gif
    Fig. 3: Fuel pump and sending unit used on the Explorer and Mountaineer 89685g04.gif

  7. Insert the fuel pump assembly into the fuel tank, then secure it in place with the locking ring. Tighten the ring until secure.
  8. Install the tank in the vehicle.
  9. Install a minimum of 10 gallons of fuel and check for leaks.
  10. Install a pressure gauge on the throttle body valve and turn the ignition ON for 3 seconds. Turn the key OFF, then repeat the key cycle five to ten times until the pressure gauge shows at least 30 psi. Reinspect for leaks at the fittings.
  11. Remove the pressure gauge. Start the engine and check for fuel leaks.

Gas pump leak


UNDER THE LIP WHERE THE TOP OF THE PUMP FLANGE IS, THERE IS A SQUARE-CUT O-RING THAT CAN BE MATCHED UP AT THE AUTO PARTS STORE. UNLOCK THE TABS ON THE LOCKING RING AND REMOVE IT. CLEAN THE SURFACE WHERE THE SEAL GOES. REPLACE THE SEAL(O-RING) AND REINSTALL THE LOCKING RING AND CHECK TO MAKE SURE IT IS TIGHT. HOPE THIS HELPS. LET ME KNOW. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. AND THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR AN HONEST RATING.

Our 1.5 HP pentair challenger pump isn't holding its prime


Usually, if a pump will not hold its prime, there is an air leak somewhere in the system. Things to look for are small leaks around the equipment-could be a bad o-ring. If you do not see any leaks, turn off the pump, remove the lid from the basket, check it for a hairline crack and check the o-ring under the lid to see if it is the cause of the loss of pressure.

1997 BUICK LASABRE


Yeah on that vehicle there is a 90 degree plastic elbow that goes from the belt tensioner to the intake manifold and on both ends there are O-rings. Definitely need to repair this as soon as possible. Not sure your technical abilities but you would need to remove the serpentine belt and alternator and a bracket if I'm not mistaken. Usually takes me about 45 minutes to repair but I have been doing it for awhile. Good luck and Happy wrenching!!!
