If any of you were following the rebuild remod of our Wagner front end loader will remember I was looking to replace the pump with a new one. I ordered the 1.95cu pump. It arrived a couple of weeks ago, and I finally got it mounted and all new lines made for the whole system. When it was done it looked like a factory assembly. I was real proud and happy with the way every thing looked. I put in new fluid,bleed all the air out that I could before I started it up, when I started it up and started working all the cylinders to get the rest of the air out,Everything looked good for about 2 minutes then everything stopped. The pump totally stopped working, so I had to take everything apart again, I found the keyway sheared, it appears the pump seized, I noticed the pump turned hard before I put it on, but thought that was because it was brand new. I didn't even get it of my shop I hope they warranty the pump, but that doesn't help with all the work I had to do to put it on take it off and now put a new one on. God Bless,Beth and Allen.
