OK guys I had it working, but it loses prime if it sits more than a day or so.
I took the pump apart and found that the main seal on the shaft is hard. I believe it is sucking air and losing prime.
I think with a speedy sleeve on the shaft and a new seal it will work again. Problem is : Where do I get a seal for this vane pump. The avenues I have persued have so far come up empty. Any help would be appreciated. Bill
