General Pump repair the next day

IMG_8191.JPGIMG_8202.JPGIMG_8209.JPG

I started by taking off the head on the pump today. When I took the head off it looked like above. The medal pieces had stuck to the ceramic shaft. After pulling the medal pieces off I put them back into the head.  Then I noticed the ceramic shafts had black crap on them.  Which I guess is bad? So I put some lube on them and put the head back on.

It still leaks and now the pressure in around 300.  Which is bad. So now I do not know what to do.

Also, today I got to dig out two of my bays. YEA!

General Pump repair

I am trying to repair my General Pump T1321 Series 47.  It is pulsating enough to close off the bay. I replaced the check valve o-rings about two weeks ago and apparently forgot to replace the top three.  The o-rings were damaged pretty good so I guess I need to look at the packing that I replace two days ago.  I must have put the packing in incorrectly.

Now the head leaks and the high pressure is still pulsating.  Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day for pump repair.
