I need to replace the lower fitting and to do that i need to remove the pump. Has anyone experience doing this? I'm leaking fluid from this fitting.

There are 4 bolts, but only two need to come out to remove the pump... top and bottom iirc.... the other two hold the timing cover on. the bottom "elbow" is a male orb to male flare.

the little nut on it tightens against an oring that seals to the pump... then there is the flare....

a lot of times the flare will get a tiny crack in it that is hard to see... so inspect it carefully for damage or cracking. I've cut them off and re-flared the end with good luck. The elbow fitting will cost you an arm and both legs if it is damaged.

Is it leaking at the pump side of the fitting or the line side, if at the line side more than likely the line has cracked at the flare and the fitting is ok.

I've fixed a few cracked flares on these tractors over the years.

They must be hidden behind that heavy steel cover on the left side of the picture and not visible. So I just feel around and loosen any bolt i find in the vicinity of the pump?. Scary removing bolts I cannot see.
I appreciate the input guys. I'll try again today to find those cap screws in hiding<smile>
thanks

What Rick and Shaun said, two bolts on the shroud bolt through to the pump, the whole unit will come out. If you don't have a new gasket, rtv it up!

Are you sure? The pump is gear driven as depicted in the manual.

The gear comes off with the pump.

Aint that the truth. Improvements seem to mean loss of function<smile>

Flare washers? Never heard of them but I'll give them a try if i can find the guy. The tubing is steel and i think over time it has gropved the brass fitting so it leaks, Thanks for the tip

Is it leaking at the flare connection? I buy copper flare washers off fleabay from an a/c guy. He sells sets of different sizes but will make you a one size batch price. They will sometimes seal a bad flare joint that someone overtightened and distorted it. I would try that before pump removal. I had a brand new OEM ford tank valve that I put a new line on from the auto parts store. The line was flared sideways and ruined the seat on the valve. I tried everything to keep the valve, even installed an extra fitting into the valve and it wouldn't seal after it was messed up. I don't know anything about those pumps though and the archives are hard to search now. Why does everyone have to improve? something that works good like it is?

Remove 2 bolts holding belt guard on and pump will fall out. Replace oring on pump mount.
