    Default Place Diverter problems

    Anybody experienced their hydraulic pump locking up when it bottoms out in one direction. I have to bleed off the psi from the lines to free it up again. One direction only???

    Alot of the time the sol seats are dirty or stuck, loosen the sols and make sure the smalls ss balls under the sol. are free. Also make sure you have a good ground right to the battery. If your 12 volt source is thru the key switch change it to a good 12 volt source. Greg

    x2, and when you screw them back in they should be barely finger tight (very light seat).

    if they're still available, get yourself one of these, it cured mine from getting stuck and from slow operation.

    On my old pump, cleaning it didnt help. I called the manufacture and they said to trim down the small springs, but not too much. I trimmed about half a ring off the bottom and it worked good. Dont know how long it would have lasted, I replaced it before it went completely out.

    Mine did that last summer. Took the hydraulic ram apart and cleaned it. It's worked fine since.
    I may be growing older, but I refuse to grow up!
