    Take a good look at these parts - this Parker P2075 pump's entrails got mashed to bits and pieces, and, apparently, the pump rotated for quite a long time with them inside! The barrel, the swashplate, even the body - they all got marked and pitted by the metal scraps and chunks, and yet the shaft bearing came out  almost intact! The picture is not of the best quality, and I should've cleaned the bearing to capture its real condition - but take my word for it - it looked almost new! The dots you see on the picture are actually tiny oil drops I should have wiped off...

   I can think of two things to explain this - either the oil flow in the shaft bearing area is very low during the operation, or the pump's casing wasn't filled with enough oil when the "mashing" occurred. I hope I will get a chance to inspect the machine and come to a final conclusion. Be that as it may,  it is still quite strange to find a completely destroyed pump with an undamaged shaft bearing, that is lodged in an open to case cavity and is lubricated by the case oil.
