Well, I too have a leak from said pump but I know why........... There are two rubber seals that get pressed in and the first needed to be oriented the other way around but I didn't think of it until after I reassembled my pump! So it has been dripping away (not too bad ) and I will fix it when I take the pump off later this month. Could you also have put the first seal in backwards?

Just a thought

I love to sail, coming from a Swordboat capt's loin one would think I'd of caught the bug long before now! Oh well, this ones for you Bisque...(My Father may he RIP)

Now If I could only stay away from working on the damn things I could sail more!
