A while back I posted a question about the axle tube that would not turn in the transmission I had. I had to cut the pulley on the transmission in half, but I got it all apart today. Anyways, once I got the pump off, I tried to turn the axle tube, and it moved. The transmission is good:). So, I took the pump apart, and discovered that the little plate that holds the pistons for the motor was bent, not allowing the assembly to move. THen I go to the parts diagrams, and see the whole thing is a "kit" That's typical. I just just need the little plate, guess the pump is junk. The price for that will be rediculous, guess im out of luck. I refuse to give the dealers any more of my money:) Might be able to bend it back, I'll have to get a closer look tomorrow.

Well, Just went out and looked at it. It appears a couple of the pistons are stuck in the bore. Can't seem to get them out, even thought they should just drop out

We think that's the reason too UCD. Also, see the white milky stuff? That was the oil that was in it. I put about a liter of dexron ATF in it before i used it, and now it's all white. It poured out like water too. Must have been moisture build up, as it's a sealed unit, and i know it's been sitting out side for years.
