All I could see last night with a flashlight, in the mud, was the shaft looked to be solidly attached at the engine, couldn't see much of the pump. I did find the troubleshooting section in the manual, under "fails to raise" it says:
A Fluid level - that's OK
B Wrong type if oil - hadn't added any
D Obstruction in pump suction line - Hmm..
E Pump not operating or properly - Check pump drive (coupling, somewhere), flow, relief valve - gulp
H Main relief valve malfunction - wherever that is
T Control valve worn or obstructed - wherever that is
I did notice the FEL stopped working a few days ago but just briefly and worked for several hours since, perhaps related. Also read that the filter has a bypass so even were it plugged it would pass fluid.
Thanks for the reply.
