When I was up at CoachCrafters before WOG they had an FC from Alaska that was killing pumps as fast as they could get them. Possibly a defect in manufacturing? Dunno.
I'm not real smart on this, but I'm just up the road in Dothan and can be there in an hour or so if you need assistance or a tool fetcher. We have 4 large truck shops here if you need filters still.

I just got back from a parts run for oil and stuff. M&D stiffed me on the one overnight filter, so I won't have any filters at all until tomorrow (Friday), but my rebuilt motor is here. I'm going to get the motor changed and clean up the filter housings today and see if I can figure out what happened.

The high pressure should not get to that seal, no. Also noticed that the old motor has a steel plate screwed on over the seal and the new one doesn't. It should be needed, but ?

My new motor had that plate on it, I am not sure if the old one did. Does it look like there is a place to bolt the plate on there? Maybe they forgot to put it on.

Here is a picture of my new motor:

Yes that's the one - the old motor has it (and the larger seal).

I started draining everything and noticed that there are no filters in the reservoir. I see where they should go, but there are no filters, trust me. I'll try to get a picture of it. There in an aluminum cross on a threaded tube looking thing with a spring on it that sure looks like it should have filters on it. !@#$!@#!$!$#@$%$@!%

Just curious - I am having a hard time finding a good part number for the 12v valve that turns the fan on (relief valve). Anyone got anything handy? Is this unobtanium? Is it serviceable?

So the oil drained down far enough that I can see there is 1 of the 3 required filters in the reservoir. Hmmmm.... I got 6 on the way will be here tomorrow.
