    Take it apart, can't be that magic inside?

    Or, look for some kind of P51 owners club and ask about getting one repaired?

    My pilot friend is coming up to the river Sunday, I can ask who he knows, and there is another guy up here who was involved with putting the first big blocks in Shelby Cobras, he has a hanger at the airport,, might point you in the right direction, he's a pretty smart old guy.

    I'm sure you've found out that as a still viable aircraft part they will want close to $1000 to rebuild it. Which is why they are tight about releasing information on them. The last thing they want is a home repair to show up and fail on one of they aircraft this pump was originally used on. QAA.com can rebuild it for you. I doubt you can talk them out of the parts or the manual to do it yourself.

    Should look something like this:

    That diagram doesn't look like the pump. That pump looks like a typical rotary vane (similar to Holly) pump. The pressure relief returns internally to the inlet. I can rebuild that for you.

    That might not be that exact pump. But, it should be pretty close since its from their pattent. Aircraft parts are just stupid expensive even if it's identical to the same part used in a car.

    Yea I thinik I threw away a pump like his not long ago LOL. Pretty sure his is rotary vane. The square on the top is the bypass pressure relief. Been into a ton of them in my A&P days. usually spline drive. Would like to see the drive spud.

    I'll help out with part of that for him. A&P = Air Frame and Power Plant = Airplane Mechanic.

    It's leaking from the seal? Probably the shaft is worn where the seal rides. Repair that and new seal. $200ish if I have to weld the stainless shaft seal area and machine it back replace the seal. Sometimes a much easier fix. Give me a call or text , i'll be glad to repair it. Do you Facebook?
