TABLE II. - TROUBLE SHOOTING CHART (CONTINUED)
PUMP NOT DELIVERING OIL
Vane or vanes stick in rotor slots.
Disassemble pump. Examine rotor
slots for dirt, grime or small metal
chips. Clean rotor and vanes in a
good grade solvent (mineral oil or
kerosene). Reassemble parts and
check for free vane movement.
Oil viscosity too heavy to pick up
Use fluid of the proper viscosity.
NOISY PUMP OPERATION
Pump intake partially blocked.
Drain system completely. Flush to
clear pump passages. Flush and

pump will be noisy. Drain system.
Tighten all hose connections. Clean
or replace filter. Add clean oil of
the proper viscosity.
Leaking shaft seal.
Check pump shaft seal and replace
if sealing lip has been damaged.
Check for scoring of shaft at seal
contact area. Replace faulty shaft.
c. Remove the pressure plate. Note the
position of the pump ring for reassembly. Pull out the
ring locating pins and remove the ring. Remove the
vanes from the rotor slots and slide the rotor off the
