    This makes the 3rd in 2 1/2 years. Kinda sucks to change out. I rather change an electric mounted to the side of frame than have to do the whole mech lift thing, If I can.
    Just wanna make sure it will work!

    There must be someting wrong there ? I have had mine 11 years and replaced mine 1 time . Does it stop or does it leak ? I know they are a pain , but something isn't right ? if you go electric make sure you have an emergancy shutoff and get oe for diesel . Gas ones just can't pull that thick fuel too easy .

    The last time I changed it was because it was leaking.
    This time I never noticed it to be leaking, but it is dirty all around it. So I guess it might have been leaking, but I never smelled it or seen it. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif
    Just dont want this to be ayearly thing.

    If it was leaking you would either see your oil increasing on the stick, you would smell it or you would see it .I think you should clean the pump off and watch it for a few days . Just my 2 cents
