The keyway was narrower in the old hub, so I CNC'd the new key down to fit. It fit nice without much fiddling for a change. I plan on getting the new pump, motor, reservoir, and air compressor swapped in this week if I can escape work for a bit. Then it's just time for some new hoses and awaaaay we go.



That must have been a BFH to make that "smack mark"

A standard Chinese pulley puller that's a free rental from the auto parts would have popped it off of the motor. I just don't get people sometimes. It seems to be OK, no cracks, and the material seems pretty soft.

Andy:

Will the broken off section not affect the balance, or is that negligible?

That's a good word for it. You'd think professionals would be, well, professional, like working to a higher standard. It's just not the case most of the time.

Yeah, your preaching to the choir on that statement
