Glad you got it going your way, Daniel. About time, huh?

Well, things took a bad turn. The guy said these pumps press apart easily, but mine was seized good & tight. I barely pressed at all and the pump body busted. I even asked him if the pump body is plenty strong & he assured me "no problem". I am cleaning the parts to see if I can TIG it back together, but if it's not good, then I'll be laying out $268 plus tax at my local JD dealer.

The welding isn't pretty, but I "think" it may be a good enough weld. Luckily it didn't break in the shaft seal area. I'll post a pic later.

It's been a long tedious day, but at this point, it looks like I have pulled the pump through. The welds will look pitiful to a pro, but for me, they look halfway decent! lol
Anyway, this is it. On the inside, you can see where it broke. This entire section went flying across the shop floor. Talk about a sinking feeling in your stomach! But it's welded now.

Here is the outside only weld.

And here she is running, just a still shot, but you can see the fan is turning.

It had a small leak from underneath on the body, but I couldn't see from where. So I put some Bars stop leak in her & went mowing. No leak at all now. Time will tell the tale whether she'll restart the leaking or not. Right now I'm stressed out a little bit, but starting to chill somewhat. Time to go feed the cows.

Mowed some more & still no leaks. Keeping my fingers crossed on this one! I did some more servicing on this machine tonight with the help of my 2+yr old Grandson. He had a great time "working" on it!
