The only reason I ask is,the shaft pulled out very easy, went in easy. I decided to pull it back out some to spin the pump by hand to feel for any play. Anyways, I could not get the shaft back through the pump,it got hung up,is their a bushing on the other end? Regardless I am going to have to split it to figure out where this noise is coming from..I know its not in the trans,so maybe I should start with a split at the clutch? Thanks for all your help, if you were closer I would pay you to do it. Thanks!
