Well Hell, Bruce...you just answered damn near every question I was attempting to ask while composing a post in another tab (and then some), i.e. any required gaskets/seals, whether or not this can be accomplished on my own, etc. (and just to clarify, I had no plans of parking it in a ditch, but I appreciate the advice none the less :wink: ). No, my intentions are to do this particular job once and be done with it, which is why I made this inquiry in the first place. That and I am trying to heed the wisdom Tim PloughNman Daley initially shared with me in my other thread and do a little homework first before jumping into the job. Sadly, of those still alive within my small circle of friends I am basically the only one left with any mechanical abilities/interests, and as such I am pretty much a one man band when it comes to getting bloody knuckles and grease under my fingernails. TY for taking the time to compose such a detailed explanation of the task ahead. It would be handy if there were a u-tube video related to dropping the pump...I'll have a look.

Dollar Bill, I was wondering what to use to assist in cleaning the reservoir. Soundguy's concoction seems to fit the bill well, but if I do drop the pump I will probably use just straight kerosene? and most likely a good amount of elbow grease as well. My only concern here is that I am heating my 24x30 garage with a vent-less propane heater and I am worried about adding more flammables into the mix. As it is I cleaned the entire exterior of the engine off with some white gas I had left over from my camping days, (along with a toothbrush, gasket scraper, small pick, and a boat load of paper towels), but it was just a smidgen warmer out that week and I was careful to only use a minimal amount at a time in a jar and vent the garage occasionally.

So it appears the unanimous vote thus far it to, at the very least, drop the pump and clean it as well while I'm at it, which I tend to agree with...just a little concerned about disassembling it, as you suggest, Bruce. As is the case with just about anything mechanical that I've done in life, aside from a few years of agriculture and auto mechanics in high school I am pretty much self taught so tackling the unexplored can be a bit intimidating that first time. I have to say though, with the help of those here who have been kind enough to chime in I have learned a great deal about 8N's thus far, and I am sure the lessons will continue so long as I still own it.
