Fortunately for hydraulics workshops there are many people out there
who repair hydraulic pumps the same way they repair, say, washing
machines. Knowing of basic mechanics and having a baggage of tools
experience is a great helper, but sometimes just not enough... A small
something gets mounted in a manner that's not correct and oups - a new
pump is wanted...
"But we bought all the original parts!.."
"I am positive it was assembled correctly..."
"There were no parts left..."
"We were using original drawings..."
"It was only bent a tiny bit..."
"Might have hammered it, but only once..."
"Oh, so the shaft rotation direction does matter..."
"Wow! That fourth whiskey...Wow..."
Serves you nothing when you end up with a pump
looking like this. If you are not sure that you can assemble something
unknown to you, look for someone who is.
