Because the shaft, (part # 517), was rusted to the housing, (part #515). I don't see what you mean by 4 bolts holding the hydraulic pump to the top cover. Do you mean the cylinder? if so, then I didn't take it off till it was sitting on my bench. I have all the manuals and experience to work on this. As for wasting time and money, the only parts and gaskets I'm replacing are parts that are in need. The cylinder and piston were scored badly. The PTO shaft seal was leaking and the sleeve, (part #735), was grooved. As for being too late I'm not doing brain surgery here, it's a mechanical device. Now back to my question, how are all the springs and levers under the top cover lubed?
