Well towards the end of the Ball Hollow plow day, I developed a small leak on the 442. After further investigation it looks like its coming from the pump. It also seems that I can remove the back plate and reseal the spot that is leaking. What does everybody think I should use? I don't know where to start to look. Maybe the copper gasket maker? Any suggestions?

Eric, There may be an O-ring inside the plate to seal the pump. I would get it apart then figure out what you need.

I'm hoping its that easy. I'm gonna tear into it tonight. Should be fairly simple to get out. Its just under the battery. Thanks.

Most pumps use an O-ring instead of a gasket like we are used to.

Well it was a good night. Got started on removing the pump. Removed the battery. Then proceeded to remove the output line on the pump. What do you know, it loose!!! That made for an easy repair. Got it good and tight. No leaks. Also adjusted the brake. It works good now. At least for parking. Looked at the wiring and tomorrow I will hook the headlights up threw the key switch like they should be.

So it really WAS a loose nut behind the wheel... Just on the other side of the dash :smilewink:
Glad it was a simple fix, nice when a guy gets lucky on stuff like this. :thumbs:
